Doughty Collects Awards After Opening Week Performance
WKU redshirt senior quarterback Brandon Doughty is being rewarded for his 569-yard passing performance Friday night against Bowling Green.
On Monday, Doughty was named the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week and National Offensive Player of the Week by College Football Performance Awards.
Doughty threw six touchdown passes and no interceptions in the Toppers 59-31 win over the Falcons. His 569 yards passing fell just short of a Conference USA record in WKU's first game as a member.
The Hilltoppers face Illinois on Saturday in Champaign, Ill.
