The Marshall University - West Virginia University football game this September 8 will be a very early start time.
Marshall's Athletic Department confirmed that kickoff will be at 11 in the morning.
That's to accommodate ESPN television coverage, probably on ESPN 2.
It's not the earliest start time ever for a Marshall game. That was the 2005 when the Herd played Kansas State at 10:30 in the morning.
This is game number two in the new series between the Mountaineers and Thundering Herd.
WVU won last year's game in Morgantown in easy fashion, 42 to 10.
