ASU's game with Montana to be on ESPN3
by Staff Reports
Appalachian State's 2013 season opener at Montana Saturday will be carried live on ESPN3, ESPN announced on Wednesday.
Kickoff for the game is 9 p.m. ET on (7 p.m. MT) at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, Mont.
ESPN3 is ESPN's online platform and is available in approximately 75 million homes nationwide, and to 21 million U.S. college students and U.S.-based military personnel.
ESPN3 is also available to subscribers through Xbox LIVE and on smartphones, tablets and Apple TV via the WatchESPN app. Check with your internet or mobile service provider to see if you receive ESPN3 programming.
The Appalachian State-Montana game broadcast is being produced by Max Media and, in addition to ESPN3, will air live on stations throughout the state of Montana.
"We're appreciative of ESPN, Max Media, the Southern Conference and the University of Montana for their efforts in giving Appalachian fans nationwide the opportunity to tune in to this much-anticipated season opener between two great programs," Appalachian State athletic director Charlie Cobb said.
The longtime NCAA Division I FCS powers are squaring off for the fourth time in the two programs' history. The Mountaineers dropped heartbreakers at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in the 2000 and 2009 national semifinals before exacting revenge with a 35-27 triumph over the Griz on Sept. 8 of last season in Boone.
This season's matchup closes a two-game home-and-home series between the squads and is one of the most anticipated contests of Appalachian's final FCS season. The Mountaineers join the NCAA Division I FBS Sun Belt Conference in 2014.
