Video: Western Kentucky commits five turnovers in six plays

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers head coach Bobby Petrino made quite the impression in his debut last weekend with a convincing win over in-state rival Kentucky. On Saturday, his Hilltoppers traveled to Knoxville to try and upset another Southeastern Conference team, the Tennesse Volunteers.

Unfortunately, things didn't go so well this time around for Petrino and the 'Tops. After taking an early 3-0 lead, WKU fell apart, committing five turnovers in a matter of six offensive plays, leading to a 31-3 deficit. Those turnovers can be seen in the video clip above.

The parade of turnovers started when Justin Coleman scored on a 23-yard interception return. After a 3-yard run by Keshawn Simpsonon the next possession, Cameron Sutton scored on a 36-yard interception return.

On Western Kentucky's next play from scrimmage, Dontavis Sapp forced and recovered Simpson's fumble at the Western Kentucky 28, setting up Michael Palardy's 23-yard field goal.

Brent Brewer forced a fumble by Antonio Andrews and picked off a pass from Doughty on Western Kentucky's next two snaps. Tennessee scored touchdowns after both turnovers.

According to ESPN, Western Kentucky is just the third team in the past 10 seasons with five turnovers in a single quarter.
