Sunday afternoon Murray State will meet Western Kentucky for the 150th time in their long series.  Most fans on both sides think of this game as a rivalry.  Murray State's Steve Prohm used the word "rivalry" to describe the game.  WKU coach Ray Harper has different thoughts.
 
"I don't really look at it as a rivalry," Harper said at his weekly news conference. "It's a non-conference game.  It's an important game because it's the next game.  There is history. Steve (Prohm) has done a great job.  They've got a good program and we have a lot of respect for them. I never really get caught up in rivalries -- I think that's more for the fans."
 
Plenty of fans are expected at the CFSB Center on Sunday.  The Racers and Hilltoppers will tip-off at 2:00pm.
