LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – According to the media covering Conference USA, Western Kentucky will not repeat as champions of the East Division. In the conference preseason poll released Thursday, WKU was picked to finish second in the division right beyond Middle Tennessee, runner up to the Hilltoppers last year.
Southern Miss was picked to repeat as champions of the West Division.
WKU returns seven starters on offense this year but the Hilltoppers did lose All-American quarterback Brandon Doughty and a lot of other offensive firepower to the NFL.
