BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- After 14 practices, the Hilltoppers will cap of their spring season with the annual Red and White Spring Game on Saturday at 1 p.m., inside Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium.
The game will feature the Red taking on the White in an organized scrimmage with a normal game clock during the first half and a running clock in the second half. Earlier this week, Brohm announced that the teams will be split between starters and their backups.
WKU returns 46 letterwinners from last season's group including 15 starters, nine on offense, four on defense and two specialists. Among that group is starting quarterback Brandon Doughty who finished last season on a tear, throwing for 812 yards, six touchdowns to just two interceptions, while completing 62-percent of his passes over the final four games. Doughty also led the team on a pair of game winning drives, once for 87 yards against Army and 99 yards against Arkansas State in the home finale.
On defense, a trio of starting linebackers and three of four starters in the secondary exhausted their eligibility, and the WKU defensive staff has used this spring to find their replacements among a talented group of Hilltoppers just waiting for their chance to shine.
In the linebacking corps, Terran Williams, Daquall Randall and Devante Duclos all played a wealth of snaps in 2013 and their experience will be counted on moving towards the 2014 season opener against the defending Mid-American Conference Champions, Bowling Green, on August 29 at Houchens-Smith Stadium.
Junior college additions including wide receivers Antwane Grant and Jared Dangerfield, linebackers Nick Holt and Dejon Brown and defensive lineman Ge'Monee Brown have also worked their way onto the Red team for Saturday's scrimmage.
