The WKU football program announced its complete schedule of home kickoff times and promotions for the 2014 season on Tuesday.

The schedule headlines four Conference USA matchups and two non-conference bouts with Bowling Green State and Army inside L.T. Smith Stadium.

The Bowling Green State season opener has been deemed the “Live United White Out Game” and the first 6,000 fans will receive a complementary white t-shirt.

The first 1,000 fans to attend WKU’s first official Conference USA matchup with UAB will receive a free Conference USA t-shirt.

The Hilltoppers will host Old Dominion in a “Black Out” game, in which the first 1,000 fans will receive free WKU eye black.

WKU’s Nov. 8 meeting with UTEP has been slated as the 2014 homecoming game. Fans are encouraged to wear red and the first 1,000 fans through the door get a free WKU foam finger.

All current and former military personnel will be offered unlimited $15 tickets to the Army game and WKU’s final home game against UTSA is senior day for the 17 Hilltopper seniors.
