WKU FOOTBALL | Hilltoppers Gearing Up for Louisiana Tech

09/12/2017 06:37 PM

The WKU Hilltoppers are getting right back to it after losing their first game of the season this past Saturday at Illinois.

That is because Western Kentucky (1-1) begins Conference USA play this weekend, when it hosts Louisiana Tech (1-1).

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET inside Houchens-Smith Stadium on Saturday.

Last season, the Bulldogs and Hilltoppers each beat each other once, although WKU’s win over the Bulldogs was the most important win in the series last year, as WKU topped Louisiana Tech 58-44 in the C-USA Championship Game.
