Western Kentucky, out of Conference USA, finished the 2017 regular season with a 6-6 record and then followed with a loss to Georgia State in the AutoNation Cure Bowl. They have also participated in a bowl game each of the last four seasons.
By adding the Hilltoppers, the Spartans have completed scheduling their non-conference slate for the 2021 season. Michigan State is also scheduled to host Youngstown State on Sept 11, as well as travel to Miami (FL) on Sept. 18.
According to winsipedia.com, this will be the first ever meeting between the two programs.
