Broadcast Outlets Set Four Thundering Herd Game Times
Rest of slate to be announced at a later date
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall Football saw broadcast information and start times announced for four of its games on Thursday.
Marshall’s September 1 contest at Miami will be at 3:30 p.m. and will stream on ESPN+, an online subscription service similar to ESPN3. Keion Davis roared past the RedHawks for two kick returns for touchdowns in a 31-26 Marshall win in Joan C. Edwards Stadium a year ago.
The Thundering Herd’s battle at South Carolina on September 15 will air on ESPNU at 7:30 p.m. Marshall and South Carolina have met just once, with the Thundering Herd pulling out a 24-21 road victory on Sept. 19, 1998 via a late interception by 2016 Marshall Athletics Hall of Fame inductee Dani Derricott and Billy Malashevich’s 37-yard field goal as time expired.
The following weekend, Marshall will host NC State in a 7 p.m. affair that will air on CBS Sports Network, an outlet that will also carry the Thundering Herd’s October 5 home game with Middle Tennessee at 7:30 p.m. Marshall wide receiver Tyre Brady set a Carter-Finley Stadium record with 248 receiving yards in last year’s matchup with the Wolfpack in Raleigh.
It is the second-straight season that Marshall and Middle Tennessee will play on a Friday evening. Marshall won 38-10 in Murfreesboro last year on the strength of two rushing touchdowns apiece by Davis and Tyler King to go with a defensive effort that limited the Blue Raiders to just 53 yards on 31 carries.
Additional broadcast information and start times will be released at a later date once they are known.
