WKU in the News

  • In unfamiliar home underdog role, Tops look to fend off FAU: WKU faces its biggest challenge of the season to date. Bigger than a trip to Illinois. Bigger than a 2016 conference game rematch with Louisiana Tech. The Hilltoppers (5-2, 3-1 CUSA) will also find themselves in an unfamiliar position at 3:30 p.m. Saturday inside Houchens-Smith Stadium. They’ll be underdogs in their own backyard against an upstart Florida Atlantic team looking to derail the Tops’ quest for a third straight league title.
