Long Description:
One of the most picturesque settings in all of college football, Kidd Brewer Stadium also stakes claim to being one of the toughest venues in the nation for a visiting team to leave with a victory.

Appalachian boasts a 196-60-5 record all-time at Kidd Brewer Stadium, including wins in 42 of its last 44 home games.

In addition to Mountaineer victories, Appalachian faithful enjoy one of the nation’s premier game day atmospheres at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Since the beginning of the 2005 season, ASU boasts an average regular-season home attendance of 23,324, a mark which comes in at more than 140 percent of KBS’s official seating capacity of 16,650 from 2005-07 and 20,150 in ‘08, when a 4,400-seat upper deck opened on the stadium’s east side.

ASU has led the nation in attendance each of the past two seasons. In 2008, a school-record 28,727 fans per game crammed into The Rock for six regular-season contests, including Appalachian’s first-ever crowds to top 30,000 — 30,718 for the home opener versus Jacksonville and 30,931 for a nationally televised Halloween night showdown with No. 3 Wofford. Reserved seating for all six regular-season home games sold out weeks in advance of the home opener.
