East Carolina paused all football activities last week, following a spike in COVID-19 cases. Marshall and ECU do not share a common bye week until December.
The Herd remains scheduled to open their season at home against Eastern Kentucky on September 5. That game will kickoff at 1 p.m. and will be broadcast by ESPN.
