BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It's one of the most important days in athletic history on The Hill and WKU wants you to be a part of it. Tuesday marks the first day the school will officially be a part of Conference USA.
In celebration, WKU athletics wants you to "Paint BG Red." You can do that by wearing red to work and snapping a photo. You just might get a break from work, courtesy of Big Red.
"Bring your red towels to work. Decorate! Go Crazy! Then take a picture and tweet it to us at WKU Sports and we're going to come out to you. From 8 AM to Noon we'll have tons of Conference USA prizes, really cool stuff," said Lindsay Boyden, WKU Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing.
The day will end with a celebration of WKU's new conference home at 643 Sports Bar in Hitcents Plaza, starting at 4:00 and going until 7:00 at night.
