12/03/2017 07:36 PM

The WKU football team will play in its fourth consecutive bowl game this December when it plays Georgia St. in the AutoNation Cure Bowl.

The Hilltoppers (6-6) will face Georgia St. (6-5) on Dec. 16 at 2:30 p.m. ET in Orlando.

“We are thrilled to accept the invitation to the 2017 AutoNation Cure Bowl and represent Conference USA as we go for our fourth-straight bowl victory,” said WKU Director of Athletics Todd Stewart in a press release. “It is a testament to the hard work of so many, and another terrific bowl destination for our coaches, staff, student-athletes and fans.”

It will be the second time that WKU and Georgia St. will ever meet on the gridiron as WKU beat the Panthers 44-28 during the 2013 college football season.
