Just five days after a win over Navy, the WKU Hilltoppers travel to Louisiana tonight for a Thursday night matchup with the University of Louisiana-Monroe. WKU is now 3-2 on the season. Head coach Bobby Petrino says the team is looking to build on last week’s win.
“You know, when I watched [the video of] the Navy game of our defense and our special teams, I was impressed at how hard we played, how much we were flying around and how many bodies we got to the football on all the different plays,” said Petrino. “If we play with that intensity and that speed, I think we’ll be fine.”
Louisiana-Monroe is 2-3 on the season. This will be WKU’s second Sun Belt Conference game of the season. Kickoff is set for 6:30 CDT/7:30 EDT and the game is being nationally televised on ESPNU. Click here for a full game preview.
