BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Under head coach Jeff Brohm, the Hilltoppers are 13-2 at home and will need another strong outing on Saturday against Old Dominion to come away with their third consecutive Homecoming victory under the third-year head coach.
The game, set for a 6 p.m. kick off, will be broadcast on the American Sports Network (ASN) with Dave Armstrong and Richard Baldinger on the call. It will also be the 85th edition of the Homecoming game.

It has been a good week of practice for WKU as they prepare to face their second consecutive opponent, of three, coming off a bye week – a schedule challenge only one other school in the nation has to face (Nevada).
“Our guys understand where we need to improve, (but) it’s been a great week of practice,” Brohm said. “We are facing a different team this week and there are a lot of things we have to stop. I think they are prepared and eager to get back out there.”
Fan support has been huge for the Hilltoppers’ success at home under Brohm, and another big crowd on Saturday could prove to be the difference as the cheering section motivates the Red and White.
“Like everybody, we like playing in front of our home fans,” Brohm added. “Our fans have really been into it. We appreciate their support, and we’re looking forward to another big Homecoming crowd. It’s up to us to put a good product out there, make it exciting, and give them something to cheer about.”
