For the second time in three weeks, Appalachian State University is excited to welcome App Nation to our campus for another nationally televised Sun Belt Conference football showdown versus Arkansas State. One of the biggest games in Sun Belt history kicks off Thursday at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
The faculty, staff and students who comprise the parking committee thank the campus community, fans and the Town of Boone for partnering with us to navigate the first Thursday night football game held on our campus on Oct. 22 versus Georgia Southern. The committee met last week to review and discuss opportunities for improvement. We thank everyone for following the parking plan and offering solutions for improvement.
Fully updated Thursday gameday information can be found simply by clicking on the appropriate link below.
We're looking forward to putting App Nation and Gameday at The Rock on display once again for college football fans across the country on Thursday night! See you at The Rock!
