MIAMI -- Antonio Andrews rushed for a 3-yard score with 2:24 remaining, and the Western Kentucky defense forced its fourth turnover of the contest on the final play in a 14-6 win over FIU Saturday night.

After the Hilltoppers (6-2, 3-1 Sun Belt Conference) went up, the Golden Panthers (1-8, 0-5) drove to their 33 in the waning seconds. One play after being sacked, Jake Medlock hit Willis Wright for a 14-yards on fourth-and-12 to give FIU one more chance. After the play, Medlock collapsed to the ground and left the game.

His backup E.J. Hilliard, the freshman who subbed for Medlock for parts of three games when he broke his foot against Louisville, came in for his only play with eight seconds left. He fumbled the snap, picked it up and then fumbled it away while rolling out to his right as Western Kentucky's Jamichael Payne recovered to end the game.
