Western Kentucky expects to see the triple option early and often from Navy on Saturday. 

The Hilltoppers (2-2) hope to do a better job defending it than the last time they played the Midshipmen (2-0), who ran for 410 yards in a 40-14 victory two years ago. This year, Navy has the nation's top rushing offense at 398 yards per game. 

While WKU knows what it'll see from Navy, Hilltoppers coach Bobby Petrino hasn't announced who will be his starting quarterback. That's not necessarily a problem with senior running back Antonio Andrews prepared to be the focus of WKU's offense after rushing for a school-record five touchdowns last week. 

WKU is averaging 473 yards per game and could use Andrews to exploit a Navy defense yielding 408 yards per contest.
