BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - The WKU Hilltoppers have lost their fourth game in five tries as they fall to the UAB Blazers on the road 37-14.

Redshirt Sophomore Kevarius Thomas got the start at quarterback for the first time this season. The Florida native showed flashes of big play potential, but also his lack of experience was on display. KT finished 162 passing yards two touchdowns and two interceptions. Thomas was also sacked five times.

This was another game that the Hilltoppers were not able to get their running backs involved. Last years leading rusher Gaej Walker finished with 9 carries for 38 yards. Jakairi Moses lead the team with 41 yards on 6 carries.

WKU will return home next week to take on Chattanooga and look to snap their three game losing streak. Kickoff is slated for 3 PM.
