MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – Middle Tennessee is still win-less after an in-state rivalry meet up with Western Kentucky.

The Hilltoppers traveled to Murfreesboro Saturday night and handed the Blue Raiders a 20-17 loss. It was WKU’s first win on the season.

Tyrrell Pigrome threw for two touchdowns on the outing including a go-ahead 11-yard touchdown pass to Joshua Simon for the lead with six minutes left in the game.

Middle Tennessee quarterback Asher O’Hara put together a 12-play drive ending with a pass to CJ Windham for the 2-yard score to make the score 20-17, but it would not be enough.

Next up for the Blue Raiders is a trip to Florida International Saturday, October 10.
