WKU in the News

  • The Hidden Science Beneath Kentucky: Did you know that Kentucky has more than 5,000 caves? In fact, the home of bourbon and horse racing is also home to the world’s longest cave system. But these caves aren’t just great opportunities for exploration—they are portals into our geologic past. This November, the Science Friday team went on the road to Louisville, Kentucky, and it rocked (both figuratively and literally). When WKU cave scientist Jason Polk, graduate student Fernando Hernandez, and graduate student James Shelley invited the team to visit Crumps Cave, a research cave in southern Kentucky, we jumped at the chance.
  • WKU’s bowl chances bleak, but not dead with one week left: WKU did itself no favors. Now it will be on pins and needles over the weekend. A 41-17 loss at FIU means WKU will be one of several programs hoping a bowl committee somewhere out there picks up the phone this week and chooses to invite them out for a 13th game.
