The WKU Hilltoppers' 2014 football season opener has been rescheduled. The athletic department announced Tuesday that the opener against Bowling Green State will now take place Friday, Aug. 29 instead of Thursday, Aug. 28.
The game will be played at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium.
The school says the change was at the request of Conference USA and the league's television partners.
It will be the Hilltoppers' first year in Conference USA. The team is continuing spring football practice this week.
