When it comes to college football, the SEC and other big conferences get all the attention, especially from the media. And it’s well deserved. Those guys are fun to watch. But there’s a lot of great football and exciting games happening among the less-televised leagues, too. A perfect example is this Saturday’s Sunbelt Conference showdown between the Texas State Bobcats and the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky University (WKU).
On paper at least, these Sun Belt rivals look pretty well matched. Both teams have two wins in conference play and three losses. Both teams are also bowl eligible with six overall wins and four losses each. However, each team needs another victory to feel good about to secure their hopes of post-season play.
To add to the drama, both teams are also led by veteran coaches who have recently taken over their perspective programs; Bobby Petrino in his first year at Western Kentucky and Dennis Franchione in his second year at Texas State. Both coaches would like nothing more than a win Saturday night.
But all that’s just backstory. At Russell Athletic, we say let the best team win. Although, if we’re being totally honest, we have to admit we’re a little biased toward the Hilltoppers. After all, they’re local guys from right here in Bowling Green. They’ll also be wearing uniforms and other team athletic apparel by Russell Athletic. And we have to cheer for that.
If you’re a Bobcat fan, though, we wish you luck. Because to us, it doesn’t matter who you cheer for, as long as you’re part of the Russell Athletic team. Russell Athletic offers a wide selection of active apparel, including workout shirts, shorts and pants. Whether you’re training for a 5k, pitching softball in a church league or just goofing off with your kids, we have the athletic wear you need to perform your best. Together We R.
