“I knew I could do it; I knew it was in me,” Western Kentucky redshirt freshman quarterback Caden Veltkamp said. “But it’s all credit to these guys around me. I love these guys. I love this team and I would do anything for this team.”
Veltkamp had five touchdown passes in the win, including three in the fourth quarter. Western Kentucky outscored Old Dominion 21-0 in the fourth quarter after Old Dominion put 21 points on the board in the first. He had 383 passing yards and an interception. He added 53 rushing yards.
