The WKU Hilltoppers travel to Atlanta on Saturday for a matchup with Georgia State at the Georgia Dome. After back-to-back losses, head coach Bobby Petrino says his offense is putting too much pressure on itself to make big plays.
“What I’ve had tried to have them focus on is just relaxing, worrying about your performance and making sure we’re not worrying about the scoreboard or where we’re at in the game,” said Petrino. “It’s just one play at a time and do your job.”
The ‘Toppers come into the game 4-4, Georgia State is winless at 0-8. WKU will be without linebacker Andrew Jackson, who was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
The game will be broadcast by the Sun Belt Network Saturday at noon central. The game can be seen in Bowling Green on WKU PBS.
We want to thank everybody who pledged their support to WKU Public Radio Wednesday morning over the phone and online! Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise about $3,800 and meet the challenge goal given to us by Dr. Charles and Susan Webb of Bowling Green!
Check out the nearby picture that shows the board where we keep track of our daily pledge numbers. As you can see, the morning started off slow, but WKU Public Radio listeners really responded in the final hour of Morning Edition!
The money committed to us Wednesday morning is a big piece of the overall weekly goal of $50,000 that we need to raise by Saturday evening.
Remember: the sooner we get to that goal, the sooner we end this fall fundraiser!
