ASU FB Notebook: Practice Resumes on Monday PDF Print
Written by Mike Flynn   
Tuesday, 29 November 2011 12:53

Appalachian State University football returned to the practice field on Monday in preparation for Saturday's NCAA Division I Football Championship second-round

matchup versus Maine. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Kidd Brewer Stadium.
With heavy rain falling outside, Monday's three-hour split practice session was held inside the Sofield Family Indoor Practice Facility. The three-hour practice included relatively lengthy drills by the offense and defense following the four-day Thanksgiving break and extensive special-teams work.
Coming off just its second Saturday without a game since August, the Mountaineers are about as healthy as they have been at any point in the season heading into Saturday's postseason opener. Most notably, senior running back Cedric Baker Boney, who has missed the last five games due to a shoulder injury, and senior right guard Matt Ruff, who had his string of 37-consecutive starts snapped in the regular-season finale at Elon due to a head injury, both practiced in full on Monday and are listed as probable for Saturday's matchup with the 13th-ranked Black Bears.
Tickets for Saturday's game are available online by clicking HERE, by phone at (828) 262-2079 or in person at the ASU athletics ticket office, located in the Holmes Center. Tickets can be purchased online 24 hours a day, seven days a week; telephone and in-person purchases can be made from 9 a.m-4 p.m., Monday-Friday. As a reminder, full season ticket holders have until Tuesday at 4 p.m. to purchase their regular-season seats for the second-round matchup versus Maine. After 4 p.m., all seats that have not been reserved will be made available to the general public.
Unlike past years, ASU students will be admitted to all postseason games at Kidd Brewer Stadium for FREE. Appalachian athletics will cover the costs to allow all ASU students to attend by simply presenting their student ID at the gate on gameday, just like the regular season. Student guest tickets cost $15 and are on sale on now.
Saturday's game will be aired exclusively on ESPN3, ESPN's online platform, which is available in 70 million homes nationwide and to 21 million U.S. college students and military personnel. ESPN owns exclusive broadcast rights to the 2011 NCAA Division I Football Championship and will show all 19 games of tournament nationally on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or ESPN3 - broadcasts will not be locally syndicated.

 

MOUNTAINEER TALK TO AIR TUESDAY NIGHT: Due to ASU men's basketball's Southern Conference opener versus UNC Greensboro on Thursday at the Holmes Center, Mountaineer Talk, the Appalachian IMG Sports Network's weekly radio call-in show, will air this week on TUESDAY from 7-8 p.m.
