WKU Homecoming set for October 31

The Western Kentucky University Alumni Association, in partnership with WKU Athletics, has announced that the tradition of WKU Homecoming will be celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 31.

The Hilltoppers are scheduled to face Old Dominion in the annual Homecoming football game at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium. Kickoff time has not been set, and details regarding the game-day fan experience for the 2020 football season will be announced as soon as they are available.

The Alumni Association and the University will continue to monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state guidance as the months unfold. The Alumni Association and the local community will design a Homecoming celebration and experience that will bring Hilltoppers together in the safest way possible.

“How Homecoming looks during a global pandemic is still up in the air,” said Ginny Hensley, Director of Alumni Engagement. “We know Homecoming 2020 will be different, and we will adapt and find new ways to celebrate our great University together on the Hill or virtually worldwide.”
