Kickoff between the Hilltoppers and Warhawks is slated for 3 p.m. (CDT) from Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium. Both WKU and ULM earned votes this week in the USA Today Sports Coaches Poll.
The ULM game will be the fourth ESPN3 appearance for WKU this season. It will also give the Hilltoppers seven straight televised games to open the season. WKU will appear in a nationally-televised game for the second time this Thursday (Oct. 11) when it visits Troy for a 6:30 p.m. game on ESPNU.
