Game Thread: WKU vs. Arkansas St.

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s try this again.

Earlier this week we attempted a live-blog game thread for the WKU/UofL women’s game, and spotty internet plus moving from area to area didn’t help, and made for a weak time.

SO, let’s see what happens today! Again, if you’re new to the concept, down in the comments, I’ll be providing my own thoughts and analysis throughout the game, and you can join the conversation as well!

Don’t forget to follow WTRT on twitter during the game, also.

The game can be seen on ESPN3.com.
In case you haven’t done so, you can read the game preview we did this morning here.

Let’s have a good time!

Stand up and cheers.

    Well well, here we are yall. The final game of the season, and the final game of WKU’s tenure in the Sun Belt. Very bittersweet indeed.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Looks like the Tops are going all red and the chrome helmets. Can’t wait to show off those helmets on the national bowl stage

  • Fletcher Keel

    WOW. The ESPN3 live stream is LIVE. Let’s do this!

  • Fletcher Keel

    And by WOW, I meant WOOHOO!

  • Fletcher Keel

    WKU will start…on defense WHAT IS THIS?!

  • Fletcher Keel

    Or my feed could freeze up. That’d work too…

  • Fletcher Keel

    Cam and Xavius are the two defensive impact players noted by ESPN3

  • Fletcher Keel

    Oh, THIS is the kind of game our defense is going to play. Excellent

  • Fletcher Keel

    That’s one way to start off the drive!

  • Fletcher Keel

    Tie game yall. This’ll be a fun one.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Good pressure on Kennedy there by that defensive front. Actually, it looked like the whole defense was involved

  • Fletcher Keel

    OLD HICKORY! Glad he decided not to skip any meetings this week

  • Fletcher Keel

    Man. One good defensive play after another. Probably the best defensive series the Tops have played in 2013

  • Fletcher Keel

    Doughty to McNeal. Pass of the year. Early in the season, that’s a drop by McNeal. Great to see this team grow like that

    • Fletcher Keel

      Makes it 14-7, and the defense gets to come onto the field. They looked hungry last drive, can’t wait to see what’s on the plate here.

  • Fletcher Keel

    J Dowl with the pick. THAT’s how this defense follows their last series up. I love it. Playing just like they did in San Macos

  • Fletcher Keel

    Antonio Andrews is a machine. No way around it

  • Fletcher Keel

    And that is your first quarter folks. Good guys up 14-7

  • Fletcher Keel

    Alright, 2nd quarter is underway!

  • Fletcher Keel

    TOUCHDOWNNNNNNNNNNNN Norris!

  • Fletcher Keel

    Ohh Schwetty. Missing that PAT. Not nice.

  • Fletcher Keel

    This pressure is not letting up. I love it.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Unless AState decides to run. Then there might be some trouble

  • Fletcher Keel

    They weren’t faked by the run there. Nice job. Onslaught lead by Arius Wright

  • Fletcher Keel

    Missed field goal! This came could end on this drive.

    • Fletcher Keel

      Oh wait, it’s the Tops. They’ll find a way for the Wolves to come back in the 2nd half

    • Fletcher Keel

      and by ‘came’ i totaly meant ‘game’

  • Fletcher Keel

    Booo punting. Booo no points. Booo poor offense. Booo good opponent defense

  • Fletcher Keel

    Red Wolves QB Adam Kennedy is down

  • Fletcher Keel

    Old Hickory has been ejected for his hit on Kennedy. Kennedy is still down on the field

  • Fletcher Keel

    Kennedy needing lots of help off the field, and Bobby P is unhappy about something.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Mister Jackson has been let back into the game after a review on his hit

  • Fletcher Keel

    Jackson just gave Knighten, the new AState QB, a nice welcome to the game

  • Fletcher Keel

    Dowling just LAYED Knighten out, and now he is slow getting up and moving again.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Philip Butterfield comes into the game as State’s 3rd QB of the drive. And game.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Well, it took 3 QBs, but State is on the board again

  • Fletcher Keel

    Doughty with all the time in the world to throw. Wish this line played like that all year

  • Fletcher Keel

    NOOOOOOO HE WAS DOWNNNNN

  • Fletcher Keel

    That’s something I’ve yet to see as a WKU follower. In any sport.

  • Fletcher Keel

    What a way for the half to end. Halftime score – WKU 20 – State 14

  • Fletcher Keel

    Who has any thoughts on the 1st half?

  • Fletcher Keel

    Well, the final half of WKU’s Sun Belt history has kicked off, and my feed once again has decided to not work

  • Fletcher Keel

    So just like that, State has a lead. I feel like called this earlier in the game

  • Fletcher Keel

    The Tops needed a score right there

  • Fletcher Keel

    A.A.’s number not getting called a lot so far. But, Tops have gone with a heavy passing game

  • Fletcher Keel

    AState field goal. Moral victory for the defense. It could be worse. Hey, where have I heard that before?…

  • Fletcher Keel

    Great fake, great run by A.A.

    • Fletcher Keel

      Oh, what do ya know, they run the same play again!

  • Fletcher Keel

    WOO DOUBLE A! Thanks to my espn update on my phone. Not the espn3 feed cause it froze again

  • Fletcher Keel

    Anddd my feed is froze. YET again. Ughhh

  • Fletcher Keel

    Another moral victory for the Tops D. Unfortunately, it ties the game. Fortunately, it doesn’t give them a lead

    • Fletcher Keel

      I can’t read. Or remember. The FG doesn’t tie anything, just makes it a 3 point game.

      • Fletcher Keel

        My stupid frozen feed screws me over again. It WAS good…but a penalty negated it. So it WOULD have tied the game…but it’s not anymore. Okay, now we are straight.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Oh no…fumble…AState ball…no no no no

  • Fletcher Keel

    Touchdown Red Wolves

  • Fletcher Keel

    Unbelievable. I believe it was JWells who said it on twitter, but this game has last year’s Jakes-out-Mauro-in feel. Except, for the wrong team

  • Fletcher Keel

    Another Tops possession, another 3 and out.

  • Fletcher Keel

    Geeze. AState with over 31 minutes of possession, WKU less than 20. Ridiculous

  • Fletcher Keel

    Great another pu…oh wait, its State punting. Yay for punts!

  • Fletcher Keel

    Alright Bobby P. Ya going for it?

  • Fletcher Keel

    FIRST DOWN TOPS!

  • Fletcher Keel

    Antonio. Andrews.

  • Fletcher Keel

    PICKED…but out of the back of the endzone. What a break.

  • Fletcher Keel

    This play is possibly for the season

  • Fletcher Keel

    FLAG! FIRST DOWN! ANOTHER CHANCE!

  • Fletcher Keel

    How many times will #WKU not accept what AState is giving them?!

  • Fletcher Keel

    TOUCHDOWN TOUCHDOWN TOUCHDOWN TOUCHDOWN TOUCHDOWN

  • Fletcher Keel

    3 point game. 10 seconds to play. WOOOHOOOOOO

  • Fletcher Keel

    FINAL: #WKU 34 – Arkansas St. 31. Tops finish 8-4
