All of Marshall’s non-conference games will be played on consecutive weeks in September. The Herd will open the season on September 4 at Navy. Marshall’s first home game will be on September 11 against North Carolina-Central. Former Herd running back and Bluefield native Mookie Collier will make his return to Huntington with UNCC.
A home game against East Carolina and a road contest at Appalachian State will round out the non-conference slate. Marshall downed the Mountaineers 17-7 this fall, a win which vaulted the Herd into the AP Top 25.
Conference USA play will open on October 2 at Middle Tennessee State. Marshall will host league champion UAB on November 13. The Blazers defeated the Herd in the league championship game last month.
