App State’s home football game against Campbell on Sept. 26 is scheduled to begin at noon and be available on ESPN+.
On Sept. 1, App State announced that its fall sport seasons would begin without fans at home events through the end of September, in accordance with North Carolina’s current Safer at Home Phase 2.5 executive order. Tailgating will not be permitted on the App State campus for the Campbell game.
Campbell is a member of the Big South Conference, which participates at the FCS level. The Big South is delaying its fall sport seasons (with the intent of playing in the spring), but its institutions may play up to four nonconference football games in the fall. The Fighting Camels opened the season with a 27-26 loss at Georgia Southern on Saturday and play at Coastal Carolina this Friday night.
App State and Campbell have played twice before, both in Boone. The Mountaineers won 20-6 in 1931 and 66-0 in 2014.
