(AP) - Marshall's football team will wear the number 75 on its helmets at its next game in memory of the victims of the 1970 team's plane crash.
Marshall (6-3, 4-1 Conference USA) plays at Tulsa (2-7, 1-4) on Thursday night.
The Thundering Herd will have the usual "block M" on the right side of their helmets and a green 75 on the left.
Thursday is the anniversary of the Nov. 14, 1970 crash just short of Tri-State Airport near Huntington. The team plane was returning from a game at East Carolina. The crash killed 75 people.
Thursday's game marks the first road contest for Marshall on the plane crash's anniversary.
