    The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will battle the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in Bowling Green on Saturday for the Conference USA championship.

    The Hilltoppers (10-2, 8-0 C-USA) are the representatives from the East division in their first conference championship game at the FBS level. Western Kentucky is looking to become the first C-USA team to go undefeated in conference play and win the conference title. The Hilltoppers are riding a four-game winning streak heading into this one after knocking off Marshall, 49-28, last week. Brandon Doughty went off for WKU, hitting on 27 of 39 passes for 370 yards and five touchdowns. Doughty was able to exploit the Herd through the air because of Anthony Wales’ success on the ground. Wales rushed 24 times for 131 yards and a touchdown, his sixth straight 100-yard game against C-USA opponents.

    The Golden Eagles (9-3, 7-1 C-USA) will make their third appearance in the conference title game and their first since 2011. Southern Miss is rolling into this one on fire having won six straight games and scored 56+ points in their last three. Last time out, the Golden Eagles never trailed as they easily beat Louisiana Tech, 58-24. Nick Mullens had another big afternoon for the Eagles, connecting on 24-of-37 attempts for 286 yards and three scores. His favorite target, Michael Thomas, hauled in seven passes for 162 yards and a touchdown; his eighth straight game with a touchdown reception. Ito Smith complemented Southern Miss’ pass game by dominating on the ground. The sophomore scored three touchdowns in a span of 45 seconds in the fourth quarter to go along with a 169-yard, 22-carry day.

    The C-USA title game will mark just the second time Western Kentucky and Southern Miss have met. The Hilltoppers took the only other meeting, 42-17, at home in 2012.
