DETROIT (AP) — Before the Bobby Petrino era begins at Western Kentucky, there's a bowl game to play — the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl against Central Michigan on Wednesday night.
The game is at Ford Field in Detroit, not far from the campus of the Chippewas (6-6). The Hilltoppers (7-5) will be run by interim coach Lance Guidry.
Petrino's hiring has almost overshadowed the play of the Hilltoppers. They are in their first bowl since becoming a top-tier college football school in 2009.
Petrino is returning to coaching less than a year after he was dismissed at Arkansas. He had hired his former mistress to work in the Razorbacks' football department.
Detroit Public Schools student athletes, singers and those with good attendance are being honored at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Wednesday night at Ford Field.
The district says about 1,500 students and their families will be recognized at the game, which starts at 7:30 p.m. and pits Central Michigan against Western Kentucky.
The Detroit schools say bowl organizers provided 1,300 free seats for the district's use as an attendance incentive. The district says it selected the 20 schools with the highest overall attendance through Nov. 30.
The 220-student All City Choir singing the National Anthem, and there will be on-field recognition of the Division 1 championship Cass Technical High School football team.
