Kentucky, Western Kentucky sign 4-game deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kentucky and Western Kentucky have agreed to a 4-game football series beginning in 2010.

The series will feature two games at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington in 2010 and 2012 and two games at LP Field in Nashville in 2011 and 2013.

The Wildcats have had plenty of success at LP Field in recent years, winning the Music City Bowl there in 2007 and 2008.

Kentucky won the only game between the two schools 41-3 last year in Lexington.

The Hilltoppers begin 2009 as a full-fledged member of the Sun Belt Conference after moving up from the Football Championship Subdivision.

WKU athletic director Wood Selig said playing in Nashville gives fans of both teams a unique opportunity.
