The Mountaineers and Chanticleers look to become bowl eligible this weekend, as both teams will be seeking their sixth win of the season when they square off at Brooks Stadium this Saturday, Injury concerns at quarterback for both programs reads heavy in the headlines, as both head coaches wonder who will be calling the signals come game time.
Appalachian State had their second big injury of the season take place last week, as the Mountaineers lost 34 – 14 on the road at Georgina State this past Thursday night. The Mountaineers are already without star RB Jalen Moore due to a shattered ankle, and he will miss the rest of the campaign.
Mountaineer starting QB Zac Thomas went down on the first drive of the game last weekend after taking an arm across the head on an inside run. The whiplash effect put him in concussion protocol, and he did not return for the rest of the game.
Senior QB Kilton Anderson has led the Chanticleers to 4 wins in the 5 games he has appeared in this season. Anderson returned last weekend against UMass, but is now splitting time behind center after missing 3+ games.
Anderson was injured against Louisiana-Lafayette in the third quarter, and later returned to the sidelines on crutches. He has now missed the Troy, UL-Monroe and UMass games, but hopes to return to the field if he can make it through a week of practice.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
Appalachian State QB Zac Thomas took a pretty good forearm to the dome in the opening drive of the game last weekend against Georgia Southern. The hit essentially knocked Thomas out of the game, so in came freshmen Peyton Derrick who was making his fifth appearance of the season.
As -11 road favorites in a tough Georgia Southern Eagle place to play, Derrick couldn’t handle the pressure early, and threw a big goal line interception that was returned all the way to the App St. 28 yard-line. One play later it was 7 – 0 Georgia Southern and the writing was on the wall for a big home team upset in Sun Belt Conference play.
Sophomore QB Jacob Huesman relieved Derrick in the second half, and matters only worsened for the Mountaineers. Huesman threw 2 interceptions, the second being the proverbial ‘Nail in the Coffin’, when it came at the 6:23 mark of the 4th quarter.
The availability of QB Zac Thomas is still unknown early in the week, so his status will be up in the air until game time. Head Coach Scott Satterfield will likely be giving reps to both Derrick and Huesman, as he figures out his quarterback situation.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
The Chanticleers only won 3 games in their inaugural Sun Belt Conference season in 2017. After getting off to a 1 – 9 record, they won their last two games and started to look to 2018.
Kilton Anderson won the starters job in the spring, although the second-year transfer from Fresno State was hoping to lead the Chanticleers to a bowl game, at least, in his final season. They are now on the brink of securing that bowl bid, although Anderson’s time on the field might be limited this weekend against the Mountaineers.
Head Coach Joe Moglia has been with the Chanticleers since 2012 when they were still playing FCS Big South Conference. He might have a decision to make about keeping QB Fred Payton on the field, as he led them to two come-back wins in their last two games.
Freshmen Bryce Carpenter started two games in Anderson’s absence, although Fred Payton is also proving that he can lead the team when it matters most. Payton put up quite a performance late last weekend in their 37 – 34 comeback win against Georgia State.
Fred Payton also led the charge to the Chanticleers come back win over UMass two weekends ago. In all honesty, Payton and Anderson both move the ball with their arms and their legs, as you can see by their rushing totals combined in 2018. Anderson has gained 226 yards on 37 carries, while in only two games, Payton has 101 yards on the ground.
If Zac Thomas is absent and finds himself standing on the sidelines, there is no way we can leave that +14 alone on the home dog. Fred Payton might be the best QB on the field when this game is in the books, so the home dog is the play here.

The health of Zac Thomas is certainly going to effect the outcome of this game. As evident from watching this Thursday affair after Thomas left the game, Derrick and Huesman looked like two inexperienced kids who had a lot to learn in a short time.

Grab your barking dog on a Saturday night at Brooks Stadium, and let’s chance that the Chanticleers earn their first ever bowl appearance with the outright win. Plus, this total is entirely too inflated for a big game with young quarterbacks all over the field.
Should Thomas and Anderson both be out? No chance they hit 57, so keep that in mind as well. This score reflects them both being out, although obviously please keep your eye on who does eventually go for both teams before you place those bets.
