Two of college football’s better stories collide Saturday at the 2017 Cure Bowl when the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and Georgia State Panthers take the field to help kick off bowl season.
The Cure Bowl is one of three Conference USA-Sun Belt matchups on the first full Saturday of college football action in the 2017-18 bowl schedule. Georgia State’s program is only eight years old, but the Panthers find themselves in a bowl game for the second time in three seasons — this time with first-year head coach Shawn Elliott. Western Kentucky enters the Cure Bowl coming off three straight bowl wins with a group of seniors that has been among the most successful in program history, but also with a first-year head coach in Mike Sanford

Georgia State vs Western Kentucky Cure Bowl
Date: Saturday, Dec. 16 | Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
Location: Camping World Stadium — Orlando, Florida
TV: CBS Sports Network
Spread: WKU (-6.5)
Western Kentucky: While the Hilltoppers have been one of the most successful Group of Five programs since 2011, this season was a step back from the Conference USA title contention in 2015 and 2016. WKU finished the year with four losses in their final five games, only emerging victorious in a triple-overtime thriller at home against 6-6 Middle Tennessee. This game is a huge spot for Sanford and his staff as they go through the bowl schedule and bowl practices to try and correct issues and reverse the trend of recent results.
Georgia State: Back in the Cure Bowl after a 27-16 loss to San Jose State in 2015, Georgia State is still looking for the program’s first-ever bowl win. Elliott has brought a high-energy approach to his first full-time head coaching gig (Elliott was interim coach at South Carolina after Steve Spurrier’s midseason retirement) and the Panthers did a good job rebounding from a tough start to the season after losses to FCS Tennessee State and a 56-0 blowout at the hands of Penn State. The Panthers were in the mix for a share of the Sun Belt title in mid-November but finished the season with a pair of losses. So like WKU, the Cure Bowl provides a shot to send this group into the offseason on a high note.
