Competition: LITTLE CAESARS BOWL
DATE : January 12, 2013
Western Kentucky became eligible back in October, but they proceeded to lose three straight games and lost any shot at winning the Sun Belt Conference. Early in the season, they had a shot after winning convincingly at Arkansas State (conference champs). Even after losing in overtime to LA-Monroe, their chances were still there but losses to Middle Tennessee and Florida Atlantic did them in.

Western Kentucky has come a long way since an 0-12 year in 2009. To top is all off, they were snubbed last year from a bowl appearance despite going 7-5. We'd expect them to make the most of this opportunity. When W. Kentucky faced the best their conference had to offer this year, they rose to the occasion They beat Arkansas State, and lost to La Monroe by 1 and La Laf by 4. When Central Michigan stepped up in class, they were hammered and for that matter, even lost by a wide margin to some bad MAC teams and barely got by one of the worst, Eastern Michigan. Western Kentucky should have the motivational edge here. Expect them to make sure they aren't snubbed for a bowl birth anytime in the near future.
