Reed's 4TDs send W. Kentucky past Florida Atlantic in OT

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Austin Reed threw three touchdowns and ran for another and Western Kentucky denied Florida Atlantic bowl eligibility beating the Owls 32-31 in overtime on Saturday.

The Hilltoppers (8-5, 6-2 Conference USA) entered bowl eligible but missed a chance to play UTSA in the conference title game when North Texas (7-5, 6-2) beat Rice 21-17 later in the day. The Mean Green owned the tie breaker against Western Kentucky having beaten it 40-13 at Bowling Green on Oct. 29.

Trailing 31-24 after the Owls (5-7, 4-4) scored on their first overtime possession, Western Kentucky countered when Reed ran it in from the 1. The Hilltoppers followed by opting for the two-point conversion and secured the win when Reed rolled right and threw to an open Joshua Simon.
