Appalachian State University trustees voted Friday to follow a feasibility study recommendation seeking to move the school's football program to the Football Bowl Subdivision level, according to a university spokeswoman.

The vote was 9-1 in favor of the move. Board member Bradley Adcock had a "no" vote, and three board members did not attend the meeting. The board adopted a resolution thanking the committee and asking the university's Executive Committee to work with Chancellor Ken Peacock and other administrators to evaluate opportunities in making a move to the Football Bowl Subdivision level.
A feasibility study committee recommended the move back in August. The board of trustees' meeting was held in Washington, D.C., where trustees toured ASU's entry in the Solar Decathlon.
