You’re more than welcome, actually, encouraged to interact with us tonight! Retweet, favorite and respond to us tonight as the Tops try and go 1-0 in the Jeff Brohm era. Also, if you feel so promted to, you can leave any comments or questions you have below, and get a discussion going there! Staff writer Will Puckett will be guiding you fine folks tonight.

And, each week, we will give you some staff predictions, and keep up with the records through the year so you can see who really knows what they’re talking about.

Fletcher Keel, editor – These two teams have a lot in common – first year under a new coach, a returning quarterback, the noticable absense of a key skill player and, probably most of all, both defenses are very young. I say the Tops young defense plays better, slightly, than the BGSU young defense and think WKU comes away with a victory around 28-21.

Marcus Browning, staff writer – I think BG wins close. It will all depend on the defense – I think WKU’s offense will handle its own, but everything will come down to how well the Toppers defense reacts to pressure. 24-20 Bowling Green.

Will Puckett, staff writer – Bowling Green has a young offense and are the defending MAC champions. They’ll win. The Hilltoppers have too many question marks; what will the defense do without Andrew Jackson, the Boyd’s (Xavius and Bar’ee) and Jonathan Dowling? On offesne, can Brandon Doughty keep the ball in WKU’s hands and not BGSU’s? Is Leon Allen a viable replacement for Antonio Andrews? 38-21 BGSU.

Also, there will be a live feed stream though WKUSports available, but it requires a WKUSports.tv membership. I do not know whether or not CBS Sports will have an online stream.

Kickoff is set for 6:30, so until then, sit back, relax and enjoy the coverage!
