WKU's Doughty hoping for a repeat of debut performance in Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

Western Kentucky quarterback Brandon Doughty had an impressive debut.

The junior signal-caller was effective running coach Bobby Petrino's offense against Kentucky and wants to keep the Hilltoppers rolling on Saturday at Tennessee. Doughty understands that beating a second consecutive Southeastern Conference opponent will be a challenge. He's watching a lot of videotape and listening intently to Petrino, who beat the Volunteers as Arkansas' coach.

Saturday's 35-26 victory over Kentucky in Nashville, Tenn., showed that Doughty is a promising pupil. Questions about how quickly the Sun Belt Conference team could execute Petrino's spread offense were answered with 487 yards against the Wildcats in a game that WKU never trailed.

Doughty had 271 yards passing and a touchdown in his first start in two years and looks to continue progressing in Knoxville.
