The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are set to kick off their season November 15 with a home match up against Austin Peay before taking on Minnesota, Belmont, Stony Brook, and St. Joseph's as part of the Preseason NIT Tournament. The Hilltoppers could be rocking some new duds for the NIT and you can help them choose with their recent fan vote to determine their alternate jersey for the 2014-15 season.
The three choices are a pretty simple black jersey with red siding, camouflage, and a striped red and white design. I think the good people of Bowling Green, Kentucky will channel their inner Duck Dynasty and pick the right one.
Western Kentucky is coming off a 20-12 season in which they lost to Elfrid Payton and the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns in the Sun Belt Tournament. The Hilltoppers make the transition to Conference USA this year and will play their first CUSA game on January 4 against Marshall.
