College Football: Fans gobble up App. State tickets
BOONE ó Knocking off Michigan and winning a third straight national championship sure helps sell tickets.
Appalachian State officials announced Monday they’re sold about 10,000 season tickets for the 2008 season, up 62 percent from last year. The figure does not include student tickets, which are distributed free.
The school is busy finishing a renovation for Kidd Brewer Stadium which will add more than 4,000 seats. The Mountaineers led the Football Championship Subdivision in attendance last year with an average of more than 27,000 per game.
The Mountaineers stunned then-No. 5 Michigan to open last season, then beat Delaware to win a third consecutive FCS title.
Quarterback Armanti Edwards leads this year’s returning team.
