With the spring football season completed, the next major project for the WKU Hilltoppers' progression into Conference USA, the turf replacement on Feix Field, is set to begin on Monday.
WKU senior pitcher Jake Thompson forced South Alabama into 16 groundouts and the Hilltopper bats supported him with six runs as WKU (21-19, 9-9) claimed the Sun Belt Conference series over the Jaguars (17-22, 7-10) with a 6-3 win Sunday at Nick Denes Field.
Senior quarterback Brandon Doughty threw for 365 yards and four touchdowns in the first half as his Red squad pulled away to defeat the White team, 58-10, in WKU's annual Red and White Spring Game on Saturday.
WKU sophomore pitcher Josh Bartley threw eight strong innings and freshman Hunter Wood smacked a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning Saturday in route to 7-2, series-knotting victory over South Alabama (17-21, 7-9) at Nick Denes Field.
Texas State came with the power on Saturday, as the Bobcats (22-26, 5-10) used 11 hits, including four home runs, to get past the Western Kentucky University softball team (31-15-1, 10-5) by a score of 11-2 in five innings to avoid the series sweep.
