One of our favorite teams, the Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers travel to Knoxville to take on the Volunteers of Tennessee in what looks to be a great match up of two border state teams. For WKU, this will be their second SEC foe of the season after an opening game against the University of Kentucky. Tennessee will be playing its second home game of the season after starting off against Austin Peay.
Both teams will be primed for a big non-conference battle, and it will be no easy task for the Hilltoppers to travel to UT and try to pull off a win in front of 100,000 screaming Vols fans at Neyland Stadium.
While the match-up looks to be tough one, it’ll take some extra support from Topper fans to get their team going. If you’re heading to the game, make sure you sport your red WKU Russell Athletic gear to cheer them on. And if you’re watching the game on TV, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pull on your favorite Hilltoppers t-shirt or WKU replica jersey. Wear your team colors with pride and know… Together We R.
