Spring NOTEBOOK DON’T FORGET SCHWETTMAN

While the race to replace Doughty will no doubt be the headliner, another point-scoring constant for the Hilltoppers will have to be replaced in the school’s all-time leader in points scored, placekicker Garrett Schwettman. A former walk-on, Schwettman was a four-year starter for the Hilltoppers and, in WKU’s two seasons as a member of Conference USA, set the league record for field goal percentage (83.8) while also leading the country in field goal accuracy (93.8) during his senior year.

KEY OFFENSIVE PIECES RETURN

If there were ever a situation to feel somewhat comfortable about replacing a two-time league MVP at the quarterback position, WKU might have it in 2016. The HIlltoppers return all five starting offensive linemen, including C-USA First Teamer Forrest Lamp, as well as a 1,500-yard receiver (Taywan Taylor), a 900-yard receiver (Nicholas Norris), a 1,000-yard rusher (Anthony Wales) and a freshman running back in D’Andre Ferby who was third nationally among freshman with 11 rushing scores last season. Whoever ultimately replaces Doughty will have the benefit of 129 combined starts on the offensive line alone in front of him.

DEFENSIVE DEPTH

Where the offense returns a wealth of starting experience, the defensive side of the ball returns a wealth of game experience but just four starters. Back for 2016 are safeties Marcus Ward and Branden Leston, defensive end Derik Overstreet and linebacker T.J. McCollum – a combined 84 starts between them as only McCollum is a one-year starter in that group. What the Hilltoppers do return, however, is plenty of depth as a result of playing numerous younger players in 2015. Of the 32 players on the defense who saw at least three games of action last year, 21 return for 2016 (See list below). WKU also added a pair of FBS transfers out of Louisville in linebacker Keith Brown and defensive lineman Nick Dawson-Brents who will have one year of eligibility remaining.

HILLTOPPERS AT HOME

Under Jeff Brohm, the Hilltoppers have been nearly unstoppable inside the confines of Houchens-Smith Stadium, where they have tallied an 11-1 record since the Brohm Era began. WKU averages 48.3 points at home under Brohm (580 points over 12 games) and carried a 10-game home winning streak into the offseason, the longest since winning 11 between 1972 and 1974. WKU has won 10 or more games in a row at home just five times in program history and more than nine just five times: (10) 1992-94, 2003-05; 2014-15; (11) 1972-74; (13) 1987-89; (14) 1931-33.

TOUGH OUT OF CONFERENCE

After going 0-12 against non-conference foes in their first three years as an FBS team (2009-11), WKU has turned it around and has been on a hot streak against teams from outside their conference. Since 2012, the Hilltoppers are 14-6 against non-conference opponents with their only losses coming at Indiana and No. 5 LSU (2015), at Illinois (2014), at Tennessee (2013), at No. 1 Alabama (2012) and vs. Central Michigan in the 2012 Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl.

Northern Illinois has a runner go for 1,500 from 2002 to 2006. WKU is tied with Baylor and San Diego State. Auburn and Boise State have seven while Oregon’s streak stands at nine-straight seasons. 2015: Anthony Wales - 1,098 yards 2014: Leon Allen - 1,542 yards 2013: Antonio Andrews - 1,730 yards

2016 WKU Football SPRING GUIDE

Head Coach JEFF BROHM 12-2 in Second Year 20-7 Overall/Third Year Jeff Brohm, a native Kentuckian and one of the state’s most notable football products, enters his third season as the head football coach at WKU. In just his second year at the helm, Brohm led WKU to arguably its greatest season in school history and certainly its greatest at the FBS level. The Hilltoppers finished No. 24 nationally after they earned their first national ranking, first FBS conference title, and first double-digit win total since moving to the FBS seven years ago. Under Brohm, the Hilltoppers have won consecutive bowl games, coming away with championships in the 2015 Miami Beach Bowl and 2014 Popeyes Bahamas Bowl. He is the first head coach in program history to win 20 games in his first two years. Brohm’s development of quarterback Brandon Doughty helped carry the Hilltoppers to such lofty heights. Under his direction, Doughty became just the third quarterback in the last 50 years to lead the country in passing yards, pass completions and completion percentage in 2015. Doughty broke every record for a quarterback in the state of Kentucky over his three years as a starter, all with Brohm on staff, and became just the third quarterback in FBS history to lead the country in passing yards and touchdowns in consecutive seasons. The 2015 Hilltoppers were also the first team in C-USA’s 20-year history to go undefeated in league play and win the conference championship game -- a mark attempted and failed six times prior. A 13-year collegiate coaching veteran with experience in the Big 10, Big East, Conference USA and Sun Belt conferences, Brohm came to The Hill as the offensive coordinator in 2013 where he directed a highflying, high-scoring offensive attack that shattered 18 single-season school records including total offense, individual passing yards and individual rushing yards. He obliterated those marks once he was given full control of the offense. The Hilltoppers have finished inside the Top 10 in Total Offense (No. 4 in 2014, No. 9 in 2015), Passing Offense (No. 2 in 2014, No. 4 in 2015) and Scoring Offense (No. 6 in 2014, No. 3 in 2015) each of Brohm’s two seasons at the helm. They are one of two program’s in the country to have such a streak, along with TCU. In Brohm’s first season, WKU broke 50 school and conference records including the school’s singleseason and single-game records in total yards (season/ game), touchdown passes (season/game), points scored in a season, and a host of others. Doughty’s 49 touchdown passes and 4,830 yards were national-best numbers as he earned C-USA MVP

honors and the Sammy Baugh Award, given to the nation’s top quarterback. Doughty was even more deadly at home where he finished the year without throwing a single interception to 24 touchdowns. If Doughty had never played a single road game on the year, he would have still broken WKU’s single season touchdown passes record, a record that had stood since 1985 with 22). As the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator for the Tops, along with Doughty’s improvement, running back Antonio Andrews, now with the Tennessee Titans, broke his own school rushing record, set in 2012, and became just the 11th player in FBS history to rush for 1,700 yards or more in consecutive seasons when he piled up 1,730 rushing yards in 2013. Brohm spent two years at Illinois before making the move to UAB for the 2012 season. Prior to going to Illinois, Brohm spent the 2009 season as the quarterbacks coach at Florida Atlantic where he was reunited with his college coach, Howard Schnellenberger. Brohm served as the quarterbacks coach at Louisville from 2003-06, assistant head coach and passing game coordinator in 2007, and the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in 2008. Under Brohm’s direction, the Cardinals’ passing attack flourished, including a record-breaking season in 2007 with Brohm’s younger brother, Brian, as quarterback. Brohm began his NFL career in 1994 with the San Diego Chargers, who played in Super Bowl XXIX. He played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1995-97, backing up Hall of Famer Steve Young in 1997. From 1998-2000, Brohm played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns. In 2001, he played in the XFL for the Orlando Rage and was named first team All-XFL as he owned the league’s highest QB rating at 99.9. Brohm was one of four family members to earn a gridiron letter from Louisville. As a three-year starter for the Cards, Brohm ranks among the all-time leaders for passing yards, touchdown passes, completions, total offense and completion percentage. As a student-athlete at Louisville, Brohm played two seasons of baseball with the Cleveland Indians’ organization while playing football for the Cards. Brohm also was named the Kentucky High School Player of the Decade for the 1980s. Brohm received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Louisville in 1994. He and his wife, Jennifer, have a son, Brady, and daughter, Brooke.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Joe Brown stopped Nathan Marcus a yard shy of the goal line on a twopoint conversion attempt with 33 seconds left to preserve Western Kentucky’s 14-12 victory over Vanderbilt on Thursday night. Brown made an open-field tackle after Marcus caught Johnny McCrary’s pass on the conversion attempt. Vanderbilt had cut the lead to 14-12 when McCrary threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Trent Sherfield on fourth-and-goal. Leon Allen had a 4-yard touchdown run and Tyler Higbee caught a 9-yard touchdown pass for Western Kentucky. Higbee set up Allen’s score with a 65-yard reception. Tommy Openshaw kicked field goals of 49 and 26-yards for Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt had three scoreless trips inside Western Kentucky’s 10-yard line. McCrary had two passes intercepted in the end zone, and Openshaw missed a 28-yard field goal after a low snap. Higbee finally awoke WKU’s offense late in the third quarter when he caught a Brandon Doughty pass, headed to the right sideline and broke free before finally getting brought down at the Vanderbilt 4 to set up the Hilltoppers’ first touchdown.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Brandon Doughty threw for 441 yards, redshirt freshman D’Andre Ferby relieved an injured Leon Allen to add a short touchdown among several key runs to help Western Kentucky survive Louisiana Tech 41-38 for an important - yet costly - Conference USA victory Thursday night. After a brief lull, the Hilltoppers (2-0, 1-0) regrouped behind Doughty and Ferby, who rushed four times for 13 yards on a drive ending with a 1-yard TD run and two-point conversion catch for a 38-24 lead with 54 seconds left in the third quarter.

The Bulldogs scored twice (1-1, 0-1) late in the fourth but ran out of time.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- WKU’s high-powered offense dominated from the outset as the host Hilltoppers scored on eight of 10 first-half possessions, routing Middle Tennessee, 58-28, on Saturday in Conference USA play. Quarterback Brandon Doughty led WKU, (5-1, 3-0) which put up 52 first-half points against the Blue Raiders (2-4, 1-1), throwing five first-half touchdown passes for Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers put up 484 yards of total offense in the first half, including 402 yards passing. For the game, the Hilltoppers finished with 593 yards of total offense. Doughty finished the day 28 of 36 for 359 yards with the five scores and one interception. Doughty hooked up with receiver Taywan Taylor on two of the touchdowns, from 28 yards and 9 yards. Taylor also caught a 69-yard touchdown pass from receiver Nacarius Fant in the second quarter on a double pass. The Hilltoppers did not punt the entire first half. In the second half, Western Kentucky settled for a pair of Garrett Schwettman field goals to close out its scoring.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- The Hilltoppers (6-2) were as close to the Tigers as 17-13 on Brandon Doughty’s 39-yard touchdown pass to Antwane Grant in the third quarter, but LSU scored the next 17 points. Doughty, who came in averaging 387 yards passing, finished 37 of 61 for 325 yards and three TDs. He was intercepted once, by Jamal Adams - the LSU safety’s third interception this season. Taywan Taylor had 10 catches for 103 yards and one TD for Western Kentucky. LSU finished with 211 yards rushing, well below its average of 325.5 yards coming in. Derrius Guice wound up with the Tigers’ longest run - a late 47-yard touchdown dash. After opening with four Fournette rushes for 15 yards on its first series, LSU took a 7-0 lead on Harris’ deep throw to Dupre. Yet LSU stuck with running plays for most of the first half with less success than usual, gaining just 82 yards on 23 carries. Western Kentucky, which came in averaging 535.4 yards and 44 points, could not move the ball at its usual pace against LSU’s defense, but managed to tie the game on its fifth possession. D’Andre Ferby broke loose for a 35-yard run, setting up Anthony Wales’ 7-yard touchdown on a shovel pass.

GAME NOTES • With his 325 passing yards, Doughty became just the third quarterback to throw for at least 300 yards on LSU in Tigers last 33 games, joining Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott and Ole Miss’ Bo Wallace. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in 17 of his last 21 games. • Before his miss in the third quarter, Garrett Schwettman had split the uprights on 88 consecutive PATs, the second-longest streak in WKU history. He is the only kicker to post two streaks of 50+ as he held a run of 59 straight from 10/11/1211/2/13. • Taywan Taylor now has 124 career receptions, tying with Alan Mullins (1982-85) for sixth-place in WKU history. His 11 touchdowns this season tie Jared Dangerfield (2014) and Porter Williams (1973) for most in a season in program history. • Taylor’s 928 yards this season are the third-most in a single season in Hilltopper history as he had his third straight 100-yard game and his fifth in the last six games. • The 101,561 in attendance is the second-most to ever watch the Hilltoppers play, just 260 people shy of the most ever (2012 at No. 1 Alabama). • The 428 total yards on offense by WKU were the most given up by LSU at home this season and most since the Mississippi State game (Sept. 20) last season.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- The Hilltoppers (10-2, 8-0) earned the right to host the conference championship game on Dec. 5 against the winner of Saturday’s game between Southern Miss and Louisiana Tech to determine the West Division champion. Doughty also became the [third] quarterback in Division I history to have consecutive seasons with more than 4,000 yards passing and 40 touchdown throws. Doughty completed 27 of his 39 passes against the Thundering Herd (9-3, 6-2). He has 42 touchdown passes for 4,214 yards this season. The Hilltoppers needed just three plays and 44 seconds to find the end zone in the opening series. Nicholas Norris hauled in Doughty’s pass on a short inside route and turned it into a 35-yard catch and run for the game’s first touchdown. Doughty’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Higbee pushed the lead to 21-0 with 6:21 to play in the half. Marshall finally got on the scoreboard when Deandre Reeves returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards up the right sideline to make it 21-7. The Hilltoppers led 35-14 at halftime and coasted to victory by adding a pair of field goals from Garrett Schwettman in the third quarter and Doughty’s fifth TD pass, a 19-yarder to Antwane Grant in the fourth quarter.

GAME NOTES • The 10 wins by WKU are the most in the FBS era and most since the 2002 National Championship team. • The win is the 11th-straight for WKU over C-USA opponents, which is the longest active streak in the FBS and longest streak in school history. • The Hilltoppers become just the seventh team in C-USA history to finish undefeated in the regular season of conference play. The last team to do so was the Houston team in 2011. • WKU held Marshall to just 31 rushing yards, which were the lowest given up by the Hilltoppers since allowing 27 against Troy in 2011. • The 27 yards are the lowest for Marshall since gaining 26 yards against Southern Miss in 2009. • Brandon Doughty became the third quarterback in FBS history to have consecutive seasons with 4,000 passing yards and 40 touchdowns as he finished the game with 370 yards and five touchdowns. • Taywan Taylor set the singleseason mark for receptions in a season at WKU with 71 this year. He finished the contest with 47 yards on three catches and added a touchdown. • Anthony Wales had his sixthstraight 100-yard rushing game against C-USA opposition. He is just the sixth running back in C-USA history to accomplish the feat.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Brandon Doughty threw for 410 yards with three touchdown passes and Western Kentucky came from behind to defeat Southern Miss 45-28 in the Conference USA Championship Game on Saturday. The Hilltoppers (11-2, 8-0) trailed 21-7 at the 9:46 mark of the first half and 28-21 early in the third quarter before scoring 24 unanswered points to put the game away and claim their first C-USA championship. Nick Mullins was 15 of 30 for 181 yards with a touchdown for Southern Miss, but threw three costly interceptions. The Hilltoppers scored two touchdowns in the final 2:52 of the first half to tie the game. Western Kentucky first went 75 yards in 19 plays, with Doughty scoring on a 3-yard scramble to cut into the Southern Miss lead. Then, with 1:11 to go, the Hilltoppers took possession at their own 3. Doughty marched Western Kentucky downfield, getting the tying touchdown on a 2-yard pass to Taylor with 11 seconds in the half. WKU took the lead, going 67 yards in five plays with a 39-yard touchdown pass from Doughty to Taylor, putting Western Kentucky ahead for good with 1:19 to play in the third.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Brandon Doughty’s final game at WKU perfectly epitomized his career with the Hilltoppers, with a slow start followed by a record-setting finish. Doughty threw for 461 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 25 Western Kentucky overcame an early 14-point deficit to beat South Florida 45-35 in the Miami Beach Bowl on Monday. Doughty finished the season with 5,055 yards for the Hilltoppers (12-2), the 14th time in FBS history that a quarterback has reached the 5,000 mark. He was probably even better than Willie Taggart thought he would be when he signed him in 2010. Taggart was Doughty’s coach for his first game and the opposing coach for his last, and his Bulls (8-5) nearly stole the show from Doughty with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns that got them to 38-35. But Anthony Wales’ second touchdown of the day, a 42-yard scamper with 5:05 left, helped seal it for the Hilltoppers. Nicholas Norris hauled in touchdown passes of 69 and 55 yards in the third quarter for Western Kentucky, and Jared Dangerfield made a highlight-caliber 26-yard TD catch over three defenders to cap a 28-point third quarter for the Hilltoppers. Quinton Flowers rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another as the Bulls were in a bowl for the first time since 2010.
