New Date Set For Marshall-WVU Game

The second-to-last installment of the Friends of Coal Bowl between West Virginia and Marshall has been pushed back one day.

West Virginia officials announced Friday morning that the game between the two in-state schools has been moved from Saturday, September 3rd, to Sunday, September 4th at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

It will be the third time in six years that the game is shown on national television; the two previous instances, however, were played at Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that it was the Thundering Herd who had to sign off on the date change. The move will officially present both schools with a "short week". On Saturday, September 10th, Marshall will play Southern Mississippi and WVU will host FCS team Norfolk State.

The last game in the series takes place in 2012. The Daily Mail says, currently, no further talks about extending the series are taking place between the two schools.
