Marshall University Football Practices will be closed to the public effective Tuesday, August 23, as the team prepares for its season opener at West Virginia on September 4.

"Our fan support during the preseason has been truly special," Marshall Head Coach Doc Holliday said. "We are now beginning game week preparations for the season and it is necessary for us to close our practices to eliminate as many distractions as possible. I appreciate everyone's understanding as we prepare for the season opener."

Marshall University's football student-athletes will be made available to the media following practices and during interview sessions on specific dates.
