WKU vs. Power 5 Schools In 2019-2020 | WKU Connection

Vanderbilt Hustler

Basketball

In the past 2 seasons WKU Basketball has went (7-3) vs. the power 5 conferences. With wins coming over Purdue, Arkansas, West Virginia, Boston College, USC, Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin.

In 2019-2020 the Hilltoppers will get their shot 2-3 times and their chances of winning are good. Here are the power 5 teams they will play:

  • Cincinnati (potentially) in the Virgins Islands
  • Louisville in Nashville
  • Arkansas at Diddle

With none of the games vs. power 5 opponents being a true home game for the Hilltoppers, their chances of winning are much better.

Football

WKU Football has not had the success that the basketball program has had in recent memory. WKU Football’s most recent win against a power 5 program was in 2015 against Vanderbilt.

In 2019 the WKU Football program will have a chance to end that drought. Here are their opponents from the power 5 in 2019:

  • Louisville in Nashville
  • @Arkansas

In 2019 the WKU Football program will have a chance to end that drought. Both Louisville and Arkansas are coming off (2-10) seasons putting WKU in good position to beat both teams in 2019.


How do you think WKU will perform vs. power 5 opponents in 2019-2020?
