After starting the season with three games away from home, the WKU football team is gearing up for its first contest at L.T. Smith Stadium.

The Hilltoppers host Morgan State this Saturday night, and hope to get back in the win column after dropping their last two games.

WKU head coach Bobby Petrino says players and staff are excited to finally play in Bowling Green.

"I'm looking forward to the routine for a home game, and what you do, and how you prepare," the first-year Hilltopper coach said. "I'm looking for a crowd that will come out with a lot of energy and excitement. It's always great to play at home. And hopefully that's something that will really help us and give us energy and help in our preparation."

This will be the first time WKU has played Morgan State, which brings an 0-3 record into Saturday's game.

WKU opened the season with a win in Nashville against Kentucky, but then lost at Tennessee and at South Alabama.
