The Demon Deacons and Mountaineers played 22 times from 1975 to 2001, but haven’t met since. Wake Forest holds a 14-7-1 advantage.
The series will begin Sept. 23, 2017, with a game at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, N.C., home of the Mountaineers, before resuming on Sept. 12, 2020, in Winston-Salem, N.C., for the return game at Wake Forest.
Each of the schools’ previous meetings took place when Appalachian State competed at the Division I-AA/FCS level. The Mountaineers began their transition to FBS this season. They play in the Sun Belt Conference.
The schools are separated by only 88 miles.
