It was previously announced that the series would begin with Miami traveling to Huntington on August 31, 2013. Marshall will return the game to Oxford, Ohio, on August 30, 2014. Following two off years, the series is set to resume on September 2, 2017 in Huntington with a game in Oxford, Ohio set to take place on September 1, 2018.
