Marshall football calls off regular-season finale vs. Charlotte

Marshall says Friday's regular-season football finale against Charlotte has been canceled due to injuries and a lack of available Thundering Herd players at key positions, which it attributed to COVID-19 issues.

"Due to the developments this week, myself and our medical team felt that it was unsafe to put the team on the field Friday evening," Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick said in a statement.

Marshall (7-1, 4-1 Conference USA) is tied for first with Florida Atlantic in the East Division.
