Herd's 2013 Football Schedule Announced
Every game on the 2013 slate is also currently scheduled to be played on a Saturday, however that is subject to change pending television selections. Four opponents (Ohio, Virginia Tech, Tulsa and East Carolina) participated in bowls a season ago.
"I’m certainly happy to be renewing the series with a longtime rival in Miami (Ohio)," said Marshall Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick. "This schedule gives our fans many drivable options and it will be great to finish the regular season, once again, with East Carolina."
After a bye, the Herd will face three of Conference USA’s newcomers in successive fashion as the Roadrunners of UTSA come calling on Oct. 5, before Marshall’s trips to Florida Atlantic on Oct. 12 and Middle Tennessee on Oct. 19.
After another bye, Marshall has three of its final five regular season games at home with tilts against Southern Miss (Nov. 2), UAB (Nov. 9) and East Carolina (Nov. 30). Marshall’s final two road games will be at defending Conference USA champion Tulsa on Nov. 16 and 2011 Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl combatant FIU on Nov. 23.
A schedule of televised games will be released at a later date. Conference USA’s national television partners are Fox Sports Media Group and CBS Sports Network for regular season games. The league’s ninth annual Championship Game, pitting the champions of the East and West Divisions, is scheduled for Saturday, December 7 and will be televised by ESPN or ESPN2.
