The Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2012 and 2016, WKU has announced.
Southern Miss will travel to face Western Kentucky at Houchens Industries – L.T. Smith Stadium in Bowling Green on September 22, 2012. The Golden Eagles will host the Hilltoppers at M.M. Roberts Stadium in Hattiesburg on September 10, 2016.
The addition of Southern Miss forced Western Kentucky to move Hawaii off of their 2012 schedule to a date to be determined. Hawaii announced today that South Alabama has taken the place of the Hilltoppers.
The series will be the first games ever between these two schools. Southern Miss’ 2012 schedule also includes a trip to LSU (09/03). Western Kentucky also travels to LSU (09/17) and hosts Army (09/24).
