After 32 years as a member of the Sun Belt Conference, WKU has now officially joined Conference USA.

The school hosted a kick-off celebration on Tuesday night to mark the milestone. Fans had a chance to mingle with WKU head coaches, Big Red and other special guests.

Western’s Athletic Director Todd Stewart told reporters that he expects the conference move to propel the Hilltopper program to a new level in college sports.

Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky shared Stewart’s excitement and says the addition of the Toppers is a great way to kick off the 20th year of the conference.
