BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU Athletics is inviting the Bowling Green community to help "Paint BG Red" on July 1 to celebrate the official start of WKU's affiliation with Conference USA after 32 years as a member of the Sun Belt Conference.
Beginning at 8:00 AM on July 1 and continuing until noon, WKU Athletics will be traveling around the community with C-USA prizes to give to people at businesses, offices and restaurants who are wearing WKU red. Fans are encouraged to tweet a picture of themselves and their co-workers dressed in WKU attire to @WKUSports using the hashtag #PaintBGRed to show the Prize Patrol where you are located.
The day culminates from 5:00-7:00 PM at 6-4-3 Sports Bar in Hitcents Park Plaza in downtown Bowling Green with the official Conference USA Kickoff Celebration. The event and parking in the Hitcents Park Plaza garage are free, and the first 250 fans will receive a free Conference USA Kickoff Celebration t-shirt.
In addition, there will be meet and greet chances with WKU head coaches, cheerleaders, Big Red and special guests, and 6-4-3 Sports Bar will feature food and drink specials. Commonwealth Radio will be doing a live radio remote, and there will be chances to win other prizes all night long.
