The 2019 Marshall Thundering Herd at Boise State Broncos football game is moving to Friday night, FBSchedules.com has learned.
Marshall was originally scheduled to take on Boise State at Albertson’s Stadium in Boise, Idaho, on Saturday, Sept. 7. The two schools will now meet on the blue turf on Friday, Sept. 6, according to a copy of an amendment obtained from both schools via a public records request.
