What Was The Best Play of WKU's 2014 Season?

A look back at some of the best Hilltopper action in 2014.

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

So, it's been a few months. The Spring Game happened three months ago, and we football fans haven't seen much action since. We're getting bored. It's only natural. There is light at the end of this offseason tunnel, though. With just around sixty days until the Thursday night season opener at Vanderbilt, let's take a look back at some of the most exciting moments of last season.

A. Juwan Gardner's Pick-Six to Seal the Victory (vs. Old Dominion)

Here's an excerpt from our post-game summary:

Western Kentucky redshirt freshman DB Juwan Gardner's 96 yard interception return touchdown kept Old Dominion from possibly taking a 58-56 lead over the Hilltoppers midway through the fourth quarter. The Louisville (KY) native may have saved his team's season.

B. Wonderful Terry's Pick Six (vs. UTEP)

"Arguably the biggest single play of the season, junior DB Wonderful Terry jumped in front of a Jameill Showers pass attempt with 12:40 remaining in the fourth quarter, returning it 90 yards for a touchdown and putting WKU up 28-27." (WKU Sports)

C. A "Wonderful" Strip-Six (vs. Illinois)

"It was a play that made you go, "Huh?"

With the Illini driving deep into WKU territory, DB Wonderful Terry ripped a ball out of an Illinois receiver's hands and raced 95 yards in the opposite direction to put the Hilltoppers up 24-21.

At the time, it tied for the longest defensive touchdown in program history." (WKU Sports)

D. Crushing the Undefeated Dream on the Road with a Doughty TD Bomb and 2-PT Conversion (vs. Marshall)

This game was insane. Read our post-game summary.

E. Hail Mary to End the Half (vs. Army)
