The WKU football team is headed to a bowl game.
After a slow end to the season, football fans couldn't be happier to see their Toppers going to their first bowl game as a Division One team.
The football team is headed to the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl in Detroit.
The toppers will take on Central Michigan.
While fans say they were surprised the team got in, they have no doubt they will win.
"I was kind of surprised being that we didn't make one last year. We got kind of snubbed out of it. I was happy, really surprised, but I was happy to see it happen," Mason Holloran says.
"It proves that we are getting ourselves a name out there to the naysayers and the doubters so, we got this!" Frank Vespe says.
"It's just all about the heart that the team gave out that last game. I felt like they deserved it after the North Texas game," Elijah Mays says.
The Toppers take on Central Michigan Dec. 26th at 6:30 PM central time in Detroit.
