Last season the tops averaged 21 points per game. They averaged 136 yards rushing each game last season. While passing they threw for 226 yards per game. They averaged over 363 yards of total offense each game. While in the red-zone a season ago they scored over 76% of the time. They saw multiple guys see games at quarterback last season. This year there will be a quarterback battle all though fall camp.  Returning quarterback Steven Duncan lead the team in passing yards a season ago with 1071 yards. Joshua Samuel is the leading return on the ground 648 yards. 

On defense last year the tops gave up 27 points per game. They gave up 172 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns. While though the air they gave up 248 yards a game and 19 touchdowns. Teams averaged 421 yards per game against the Tops. When teams got to the red-zone they score points on 81% of the time. They scored touchdowns 46% of the time. The top tackler returning a season ago is Devon Key with 71 tackles (41 solo and 30 assisted).

With these stats from a season ago they saw a record of 3-9. We saw a coaching change after the season with Mike Sanford being let go and Tyson Helton coming to be the next head coach.

We will be doing a preview and recap of the 2018/2019 season for the opposite teams on WKU schedule. We will be doing this over the next 6 weeks leading up to the first game against Central Arkansas.
