Football: Tops to play LSU in 2011

2 08 2010

Western Kentucky athletic director Ross Bjork said this morning that the Hilltoppers have signed an agreement to play a one-year guaranteed game at LSU during the 2011 season.

The deal will pay WKU $900,000 and will take place on Nov. 12, rather than the customary first four game run of the season.

The LSU game completes the Hilltoppers’ 12-game slate for 2011 as WKU will open the season against Kentucky at LP Field in Nashville (technically a Hilltopper home game) on Sept. 1 – which is a Thursday – before hosting Navy on Sept. 10. Sept. 17 will see WKU play host to 1-AA Indiana State.

WKU will host Louisiana-Lafayette, Florida International, Troy and Arkansas State in league play, and will travel to Florida Atlantic, North Texas, Louisiana-Monroe and Middle Tennessee.

Dates have yet to be determined for all Sun Belt contests.
