2020

The Hilltoppers weren’t hard to figure out in 2020. The D was actually pretty good, but the O was God-awful.

2021

The Portal giveth, and the Portal taketh away. Half the team seems to have left, but the incoming shipment is, in alot of cases, a step up. Leading the way is Houston Baptist transfer QB Bailey Zappe…. in 2020 this kid threw for more than 1800 yards, 15 TDs, and one pick… in 4 games. The passing game will flourish, but the running game isn’t likely to. The D will still be good, but not great.

If Things Go Well

10-2

If Zappe lights it up, they won’t need much of a running game… this is Conference USA, not the SEC. If he does and the D takes it up a notch, there’s a good chance WKU winds up in the conference title game.

If They Don’t

7-5

It’s just as possible that they start 1-3…. the conference schedule is as easy as anyone in America gets, so even if Zappe flops, they should still win enough to reach a decent bowl.

Prediction

9-3

The bad news is that the Hilltoppers will start 1-3. The good news is those will probably be the only 3 regular season losses.
