CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The athletic directors at Marshall and West Virginia say they've held discussions over continuing a football series between the schools after the current contract expires.

Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick wants the series to continue. The current seven-game contract expires in 2012.

The sticking point is how often the Thundering Herd would have to travel to Morgantown. Hamrick says he wants WVU to come to Huntington for every game Marshall plays at WVU.

New WVU athletic director Oliver Luck says he's sat down with Hamrick and the pair have talked over the phone a few times. Luck will only say that talks have occurred.

Hamrick admits that if no new deal isn't reached before the upcoming season starts, more discussions would likely have to wait until after the season.
