The Hilltoppers open Conference USA play at home vs. Marshall on Sept. 29 and that contest will be broadcasted on Stadium while the Nov. 10 game at Florida Atlantic will be streamed on Facebook through Stadium.

beIN Sports will carry WKU’s final two home games: against Florida International on Oct. 27 then Texas El Paso on Nov. 17. In addition, road contests against Middle Tennessee on Nov. 2 and Louisiana Tech on Nov. 24 can be seen on CBS Sports Network.
