Appalachian State University football’s Sept. 12 contest at Clemson will kick off at 12:30 p.m. and air live on ESPN3, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Friday.

ESPN3, ESPN’s online platform, is available in over 100 million homes nationwide. ESPN3 is also available through Xbox LIVE and on smartphones, tablets and Apple TV via the WatchESPN app. Check with your internet or mobile service provider to see if you receive ESPN3 programming.

With the announcement, 11 of Appalachian State’s 12 football games in 2015 are guaranteed to be shown live on an ESPN platform (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPNews and/or ESPN3), as the Mountaineers’ non-conference home tilts versus Howard (Sept. 5) and Wyoming (Oct. 3) and all eight Sun Belt Conference games will be aired on the ESPN family of networks per the Sun Belt’s contract with the Worldwide Leader in Sports.

The Sun Belt and ESPN have already announced that Appalachian State’s pivotal conference home games versus rival Georgia Southern (Oct. 22) and Arkansas State (Nov. 5) will be televised nationally on ESPNU. Television arrangements for the season opener versus Howard will be finalized this summer while ESPN will announce networks for all other contests 12 days prior to gameday.

Television for the Mountaineers’ Sept. 26 game at Old Dominion is TBA.

Appalachian State’s visit to Clemson is the Mountaineers’ first since a narrow 23-12 defeat at Clemson’s Memorial Stadium on Sept. 6, 1997. Appalachian is 0-4 all-time against the Tigers, with all four contests having been played at Memorial Stadium (better known as “Death Valley”).

After winning its final six games of last season, Appalachian State (7-5 in 2014) carries the nation’s fifth-longest winning streak into the 2015 campaign. Clemson was ranked No. 15 in the final 2014 Associated Press poll after thumping Oklahoma, 40-6, in the Russell Athletic Bowl to finish 10-3.

Tickets for the Mountaineers’ first visit to Death Valley in 18 years are currently available only to Appalachian State full- and half-season ticket holders. To purchase season tickets, visit appstatesports.com/tickets or call the Appalachian State athletics ticket office at (828) 262-2079.

Single-game tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
