Saturday Is Big

This is the last chance. The last chance to see the Red Wolves at home. The last chance to see 21 seniors play at home. The last chance to post another strong home attendance number. The last chance to post a crowd to point to for bowl committees. The last chance to be inside Liberty Bank Stadium.

Saturday wraps up the home portion of the 2013 season. Don't think about attending or make plans to attend, just attend. Get your friends, neighbors and enemies out to Liberty Bank Stadium Saturday. The rain will be gone, it will be cool out but comfortable.

The Red Wolves with a win, finish no worse than second place in the Sun Belt and with wins the next weeks and a loss by UL Lafayette, Arkansas State will take its third conference title and with two losses by the Cajuns will with the league outright for the third season.

AState is fighting for its third straight bowl bid and a victory on Saturday will put the Red Wolves in great position to take one of the Sun Belt's two spots.

This is a milestone game. A lot will change before you get the chance to watch a real game there again.

Twenty-one seniors run out for the last time at home. LaAngelo Albright, Phillip Butterfield, Jake Campbell, Ryan Carrethers, Brian Davis, Amos Draper, Darius Dunaway, R.J. Fleming, John Gandy, Steven Haunga, Julian Jones, Adam Kennedy, Carlos McCants, Cliff Mitchell, Allen Muse, David Oku, Cade Oliver, Eddie Porter, Dexter Samuel, Sirgregory Thornton and Aaron Williams.

Sometime between Saturday and next season Liberty Bank Stadium will be no more as it becomes Centennial Bank Stadium.

In the early spring, the area just north of the stadium will become a construction area as the indoor practice facility construction starts.

There may be another facility upgrade taking place during the off-season as well.

Get out there, and soak it in because next year will see the effects of progress at AState.
