It was a homecoming to forget for WKU (1-3), (1-1, C-USA), as the Hilltoppers were throttled by Marshall University (3-0), (1-0, C-USA) by a final score of 38-14.
WKU will now have to face an arguably more challenging foe in last year’s Conference USA Champions, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (3-1), (1-0, C-USA). UAB had their most recent scheduled game against Rice postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
The third road game of the season for the Hilltoppers will be played at Legion Field next Saturday on Oct. 17. Kickoff is slated for 12:30 p.m. CT.
So far this season the Blazers have outscored their opponents 122-89 and have not lost a home game since Nov.
