Opening kickoff for the Red Wolves' season home-opening contest versus the Bobcats is at 6 p.m. (CT) inside Centennial Bank Stadium in Jonesboro, Ark. A-State, under first-year head coach Blake Anderson, is the defending three-time (2011, 2012 and 2013) Sun Belt Conference (SBC) Champions.

The buses, provided by JETS, will provide round trip transportation for fans who park their vehicle in the City of Jonesboro parking lot. The city parking area is located at the intersection of Cate Avenue and Church Street which is across from the old Mercentile Bank /Union Planters Bank Building.

The fare per person each way is $1.25 for adults, $.90 for A-State Students with a valid student ID, and $.60 for senior citizens age 65 or older, disabled individuals, and veterans with a veteran's pass.
