WCU-ASU football rivalry might be ending this Saturday

When the WCU football team travels to Appalachian State for a 3:30 p.m. game this Saturday, Nov. 23, it apparently will mark the end of “The Battle for the Old Mountain Jug.”

With ASU leaving the Southern Conference for the Sun Belt Conference next season, this year is expected to be the last time the longtime mountain rivals, who have met 77 times since 1932, will compete on the gridiron – at least for the foreseeable future. Whoever wins the game this year could be locking up the jug long-term.

Visit the WCU athletics department’s Gameday Central for a “Catamount Football Minute” video preview.

Check out the SoCon football teleconference report for comments from the coaches.
