Appalachian State Athletics statement regarding Saturday's football game:
“As we move forward with hosting our first home football game of the season on Saturday, we are in close communication with Southern Miss Athletics, as well as the National Weather Service and our campus emergency management team, regarding the storm track of Hurricane Florence.
Currently, we are still planning to host Southern Miss on time at 3:30 p.m. at The Rock on Saturday, Sept. 15.
As we monitor Hurricane Florence, we will make the best decision possible for our campus, fans and visiting team.
If any changes need to be made to the game schedule, we will communicate this to campus and ticket holders via the university website, email and local and regional media outlets.”
