The Austin Peay Governors and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers meet up in Week 0 at Houchens Industries-L. T. Smith Stadium in Bowling Green, KY. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. ET and the game will air on CBS Sports Network. The Governors are coming off a 6-5 season, and 4-2 in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Hilltoppers finished with an 8-5 record, and 7-1 in the Conference USA.

The Governors were great against the pass in 2021, recording 19 interceptions (second in the FCS). They will need that same aggression, rubbing up against the heavy passing offense that WKU is projected to have for a second-consecutive season.

Western Kentucky is a 27.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the point total set at 64. There is no moneyline available.
