WVU Pays Tribute to Marshall on 50th Anniversary of Tragedy

This morning, WVU shared a tribute for the 50th anniversary of the Marshall University plane crash on their social media pages.


The caption of the post read, “This week marks 50 years. Thinking of Herd Football.”



The photo used is of a historical marker at the site of the crash in Wayne County, West Virginia.


Even as heated of a rivalry that the Marshall-WVU series is, particularly with the fans, it is always imperative we remind ourselves that some things are just bigger than football.
