WKU Hilltoppers at Michigan State Time, TV, How to Watch, How to Stream



The 17/16 Michigan State Spartans (4-0, 2-0) have yet another night game for the second straight week, as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers come to town for the final non-conference game of the 2021 regular season. The WKU’s top-flight offensive will hope to shake up MSU, as the Hilltoppers visit East Lansing and “The Woodshed” for the very first time.

As the Spartans enter the game undefeated, the Hilltoppers have a powerful midair attack that could push secondary Michigan State to the limit. However, it will be an electric night as Spartan Stadium hosts its second straight night game for the second time in its history (2019 against Tulsa and Western Michigan was the other event, both wins), and the 25th game. all time. MSU is 17-7 in previous games at Spartan Stadium.

Saturday’s game marks the programs’ first ever meeting as Michigan State has never faced Western Kentucky. However, the Hilltoppers gave MSU rival Big Ten, Indiana, all he could handle in a 33-31 loss to the Hoosiers at Houchens Industries-LT Smith Stadium in Bowling Green, Ky., Last Saturday, September 25. The match marked the IU traveled for the second time to WKU, the other being a win in 2010. MSU will face the Hoosiers in Bloomington in two weeks on October 16.

Saturday’s game will mark the 105th home game for Michigan State. MSU has hosted one every year since 1915, with the exception of 1943 and 2020. The Spartans are 68-33-3 all-time in home games. Despite a poor performance last week, Michigan State enters this game with the fourth most significant offense in the Big Ten (30th in FBS) with 35.2 points per game, and is third in the conference rushing to 215, 5 yards per game (22nd in FBS). The game should offer an exciting duel between offenses.
