Hilltoppers seek first win of 2020 campaign welcoming overlooked Liberty

The Hilltoppers are set for their home opener after a 35-21 loss to open the season at the University of Louisville.

WKU will welcome the Liberty University Flames to Houchens-Smith Stadium as the two schools get set for their third matchup all-time. The Flames emerged victorious in both previous meetings winning 23-14 in 1996 at WKU, and winning 49-36 in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1995.

Head Coach Tyson Helton knows how important it is for the Hilltoppers to avoid an 0-2 start to the season. Helton stated just how big of a game this is for WKU.

“Very, very big, and they’re all important,” Helton said.
