BOONE, N.C. – Appalachian State’s Sept. 8 football road game at Charlotte has been set for a 6 p.m. kickoff on ESPN+, it was announced by the Conference USA office Thursday.
It will be the first matchup on the gridiron between the Mountaineers and 49ers, who began playing football in 2013. It will also mark App State’s shortest 2018 road trip, as the two campuses are separated by only 107 miles.
Kickoff times have now been set for each of App’s first three games of the 2018 season. The Sept. 1 season opener at Penn State will kick off at 3:30 p.m. (Big Ten Network), and the Sept. 15 home opener versus Southern Miss will start at 3:30 p.m. (ESPN+).
Launched this spring, ESPN+ is a direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service that offers thousands of additional live events and costs just $4.99 a month.
Under the direction of head coach Scott Satterfield, App State has won a share of the Sun Belt Conference Championship each of the last two seasons and are the first program in FBS history to win a bowl game in each of the first three years eligible after making the jump from the FCS ranks.
