Western Kentucky does NOT play Middle Tennessee in 2013, as a result of MT’s move to C-USA. They will play UL-Lafayette.

What does MTSU moving to C-USA have to do with playing Western in the non-conference?

Western still needed a game, and MTSU could of canceled another game to make room for this one. That is a little rivalry because they are so close apart.
