App State Offers Great Deals for September 9th Home-Opener

For the second time in the past three seasons, Appalachian State University football will don new, all-gold Nike uniforms on this Saturday’s home opener against Savannah State at 3:30 p.m. on ESPN3. All fans are encouraged to wear gold with the Apps for the home opener as we hold a ‘Gold Out’ at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

The day will also feature a number of special events including the 2017 Hall of Fame Induction and a recognition of the 2007 football team that captured a FCS National Championship and stunned the nation with a season-opening upset of Michigan.

App previously debuted new all-gold uniforms in the 2015 season opener against Howard, where 24,134 screaming fans cheered on the Mountaineers to a 49-0 shutout, surpassing Kidd Brewer Stadium’s seating capacity of 23,150.


Two special ticket promotions for the Gold Out have been announced and include four reserved tickets and a concessions voucher for four drinks and four hot dogs for only $99. “Select “special offers tab” and use the promo code “fam4pack” when visiting the ticket site when placing your order. Use the promo code “famga” for four general admission tickets and a concessions voucher that comes with four drinks and four hot dogs for $79.


Fans in attendance on the 9th will also witness the recognition of the 2007 FCS National Championship team that finished 13-2 and capped off one of the most dominating runs in college football with an unprecedented three-peat. On the way to that ’07 national title, the Mountaineers shocked the college football nation by becoming the first FCS team ever to defeat a ranked FBS team with a thrilling and monumental 34-32 win at Michigan in the “Big House”. The 10-year anniversary of the historic win will be celebrated at the home opener as well.
