HUNTINGTON, W.Va.-The Conference USA office has announced that Marshall’s home football game with East Carolina, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 30, has been moved up a day to accommodate national television.

The game time and network will be announced at a later date. CBS Sports Network has carried four of the last five games in the series, while CSS had the 2010 contest.

Last year's meeting between the teams produced the highest scoring game in C-USA history, as the Pirates won, 65-59 in double-overtime.

A preliminary 2013 C-USA television schedule, including networks and some game times is expected to be released in May.
