Family Weekend is set for Oct. 3-5, highlighted by Appalachians first-ever Sun Belt Conference home game versus South Alabama on Saturday, Oct. 4. Homecoming is slated for one week later when the Mountaineers take on Liberty on Saturday, Oct. 11. Liberty will be Appalachians homecoming opponent for the second time.

Black Saturday is set for Saturday, Nov. 8 when 2012 Independence Bowl participant Louisiana-Monroe makes its first visit to The Rock. ULM is the first team besides Furman or Georgia Southern to serve as App States Black Saturday foe since 2001, when all six of Appalachians home games were dubbed Black Saturday. Other traditional specialty dates (Education Day, etc.) will be set at a later time.
