Arkansas State to Collect Shoes at Final Game


WKU's 13 seniors and their families will be recognized prior to kickoff, and fans are encouraged to wear "red" in support of the Hilltoppers. Football tickets may be purchased at any time via or by calling 1-800-5 BIG RED. The ticket windows at Houchens Industries - L.T. Smith Stadium will open at 2:00 p.m.
WKU's Student Athletic Advisory Committee working in conjunction with Soles4Souls, will have collection areas for anyone wishing to donate shoes to be sent to underdeveloped countries throughout the world.

Fans may begin tailgating at 2:00 p.m., the time in which the Avenue of Champions closes to all traffic. Opening at 3:00 p.m. on South Lawn is Topper Town, which features inflatables, a kids play area and activities for children of all ages.

The Topper Walk, featuring the entire football team's walk down the Avenue of Champions from the Kentucky Museum to Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium, begins at 3:40 p.m. The players will distribute 100 T-shirts to fans during the walk.

WKU cheerleaders will throw T-shirts into the stands following each Hilltopper touchdown. The pre-game show features fireworks and the Big Red Marching Band.
