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


MarcoHeadThe Thundering Herd football team’s Oct. 11 matchup with the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders will be Marshall’s Homecoming game, it was announced last week. 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, executive director of the Marshall University 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 going to be great.”

Homecoming week plans will be shared on Marshall’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/marshallu, and on the MU Homecoming website, www.marshall.edu/homecoming. Game tickets and Herd football information are available at www.herdzone.com.
