We report optical spectroscopic observations of ASASSN-14mf (ATel #6831) obtained on UT Nov 22.1 with FAST (range 3600-7450 Angstroms) mounted on the F. L. Whipple Observatory 1.5-m telescope. The spectrum shows features characteristic of a normal Type Ia SN around maximum light. After correcting for the redshift of the host galaxy, we measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -10200 km/s.
