HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Marshall football added another home game for the 2020 season as they announced Eastern Kentucky will be the season opener on September 5th.

We are now back to six home games in 2020, which is important for our program and fan base.”
The Thundering Herd holds the all-time series lead 11-8-1, including a 32-16 victory in 2018.
The Colonels will be led by first-year coach Walt Wells, who was announced as EKU’s head coach on December 9, 2019. The team went 7-5 last season, including a 5-3 mark in the Ohio Valley Conference.
