The 2018-2019 WKU football and men’s basketball teams will field their 100th teams on the gridiron and hardwood.

According to WKU Athletics, Western Kentucky is “believed to be the only FBS program to ever honor both programs in the same season and is one of three (Louisville, UCLA) to celebrate their 100th football team in 2018.”

Spectrum News’ Ryan Dearbone has more on the future of both programs in the video here:
