Marshall, Pittsburgh agree to 2-game series
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall and Pittsburgh have agreed to a home-and-home football series in 2016 and 2020.
Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick said Tuesday the Thundering Herd will visit Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Oct. 1, 2016. The Panthers will play in Huntington on Sept. 26, 2020.
It will mark the first meetings between the schools.
Hamrick says his goal has been to bring quality, nationally recognized programs on a home-and-home basis to Huntington, and “the addition of Pitt is another step in that process.”
Marshall also has home-and-home arrangements with two other Atlantic Coast Conference teams, Louisville and North Carolina State.
