Herd to battle the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State in October 11 Homecoming game

Updated 4 years ago Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University
Marshall University officials today announced that the Thundering Herd football team's Oct. 11, 2014, matchup with the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders will be Marshall's Homecoming game. That Saturday's game kickoff time will be announced later.

"The Raiders pulled a sly one last fall and upset our Thundering Herd on their home turf in Murfreesboro, which turned out to be our only conference loss of the year," said Matt Hayes, director of the Marshall Alumni Association. "Now, it's our turn to welcome them to Huntington with a Cato air show. October is an absolutely beautiful time to be in the hills of Huntington with perfect football weather and gorgeous fall color. We hope Marshall alumni and fans and our friends at MTSU will join us for a weekend of warm hospitality and a lot of special events we're already planning. It's gonna be great."

Homecoming week plans will be shared at Marshall's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/marshallu, and the MU Homecoming website, www.marshall.edu/homecoming. Tickets and Herd football information are available at the official Marshall Athletics site, www.herdzone.com.
