HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick said the Thundering Herd will travel to South Carolina for a football game in 2018.

Hamrick announced the agreement Friday.

The deal will bring Marshall a $1.4 million guarantee, which the school said was the largest in its history. The game will take place at Williams-Brice Stadium on Sept. 15, 2018.

Hamrick said Marshall is excited to play a Southeastern Conference opponent. The two schools had met just once before with the Thundering Herd defeating the Gamecocks 24-21 in 1998.
