According to Rick DuBose, Executive Director of the WKU Alumni Association, Topper fans can gather at LP Field’s Parking Lot T from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., prior to the 6 p.m. kickoff time. Atmos Energy will provide food and non-alcoholic beverages.
“Games don’t get much bigger than this one—two Kentucky universities with new coaches, opening the year in an NFL stadium,” DuBose said. “Come tailgate with your WKU friends at Titans Stadium, and let’s get fired up for a big WKU victory!”

New NFL bag policy in effect at LP Field
New NFL bag policies will be in effect when WKU takes the field against UK in the season opener at LP Field in Nashville. The new policy affects restrictions on the size of bags that are permitted into LP Field — not the items that you normally need to bring to a game. Each fan may carry in their pocket items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets, and credit cards, and may also continue to carry a blanket or jacket into the stadium.
LP Field security strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags into the stadium. However, certain bags are permissible and those exceptions are listed below. Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:
Fans may carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
- Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ by 6″ and 12″ or
- A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
- An exception will be made for medically necessary items, including seat cushions, after proper inspection at Gates 1, 5 & 7 designated for this purpose.
- Diapers and wipes must be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.
