Marshall University announced on its website today that it will play a two-game football series against Navy in 2016 and 2018.
The 2016 game will be at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Sept. 3; the teams will meet Oct. 13, 2018, in Huntington, W.Va.
“We are very excited in the future to host a program with the history and tradition of the U.S. Naval Academy,” Marshall AD Mike Hamrick said.
Marshall went 5-7 (4-4 Conference USA) last season. The Thundering Herd are a bit removed from their salad days, where Randy Moss, Chad Pennington and Byron Leftwich beat up on inferior competition.
