WKU Football resolved its 2022 schedule conflict with Marshall, Old Dominion and Southern Miss. Three programs withdrew from Conference USA the 2021-22 academic year to move to the Sun Belt conference. 

The non-conference games stayed while the Hilltoppers conference schedule changed. The revised schedule will include four home and four road games with contests between Alabama-Birmingham and North Texas, Charlotte, Rice and Florida Atlantic being adjusted.   

WKU will now play UAB on Oct. 22 and North Texas on Oct. 29 at Houchens-Smith Stadium before going on the road against Charlotte on Nov. 5. The last two conference games for the Hilltoppers will be against Rice Nov. 12 and on the road against FAU on Nov. 26. 

Television times are to be determined and will be released at a later date.
