It looks like Marshall University's annual basketball match-up against WVU will take place twice in 2012.
Per Chuck Landon of the Herald Dispatch, next seasons Capital Classic is set for December 5th, a full month and a half sooner than it's typical late January tip off. Landon reports that WVU forced the change in order to accommodate an early 2013 out of conference game against Gonzaga.
In a separate article, Landon took Mountaineers athletic director to task for the switch. Specifically, the early December tip off means West Virginia's state legislator will not be in session during the game.
