Before the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers took on the Navy Midshipmen, WKU strength coaches Joe Miday and Scott Wilks broke paddles over each other to psych up the team. The funniest part is that it looks like only a handful of players saw them break the paddles over each other and the team was already pretty riled up before they did it. The Hilltoppers went on to beat the Midshipmen...
It looks like Andrew Jackson isn’t just some famous dude on the $20 bill.
A different Andrew Jackson is making his name in college football, this one being the Western Kentucky University linebacker. He got himself noticed Saturday with a pretty ferocious hit against (regular old) Kentucky when he busted through the line and sacked quarterback Jonathan George on a fourth-down handoff...
WELP. It’s week 1 of the college football season and we have a contender for best game day sign of the year. Bobby Petrino, formerly the head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks now of the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, was involved in a motorcycle crash at his last job with a certain female on the back. It happened to be a girl named Jessica Dorrell and she happened to not be Petrino’s...

This highly anticipated showdown begins this Saturday in Nashville at 7 p.m. EST.
Brandon Doughty doesn't wonder what might have been because of a knee injury two years ago, the Western Kentucky junior is too busy working to become the Hilltoppers' starting quarterback.
In fact, Doughty believes things are happening as they're supposed to as he embarks on a new phase with new coach Bobby Petrino while learning a new spread offense. Doughty's coming...
These new jerseys for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are actually pretty sweet. My favorite part is the university seal in the number, they are the only team in the country that has something that unique. The font of the numbers and writing is a great choice, and so is the decision to go to the chrome helmet full time. It looks like the Hilltoppers have three different uniform...

Not sure how this one slipped through the cracks, but leave it to the bros in Lexington to have the college football fight video of the weekend. Only hours before the Wildcats were embarrassed at home by the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, one of the oddest tailgate fights we’ve ever seen took place. It seemed like a massive group of Kentucky fans just ganged up on a fellow Wildcat...
