The station also carried Marshall’s game at UCF on Oct. 8 and the Oct. 22 date at Houston.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to, once again, partner with WSAZ to bring Marshall Football back to the Tri-state area on Saturday,” said Jason Golden, General Manager Marshall Thundering Herd Sports Marketing.

“This broadcast gives Herd fans another chance to see Marshall play a big Conference USA game, which is a win-win for everyone involved.”

With a pair of wins, the Marshall program would become bowl-eligible and register five Conference USA wins for the first time in its history.
