Since joining FBS App State has had good success in the Sun Belt. However, they have yet to bag a Power 5 opponent a la their win over Michigan that put the school on the map.
Georgia was nothing special last season, at least not by their own standard.
In year two Kirby Smart better start having folks in Athens believing in the future. That means beating on up opponents they think the Dawgs should.
App State tied for the best record in the Sun Belt with a 7-1 record. They also nearly got a power 5 opponent putting a scare into Tennessee during opening week a year ago.
This is an experienced team that is not going to be intimidated. Still it is going to be hard for them not to be pushed around by a very physical and athletic Georgia squad.
Taylor Lamb is a very experienced quarterback and knows how to operate the Mountaineers ground heavy attack. They had two 1000 yard rushers a year ago and both return.
The key will be whether their offensive line can get a push up front. They are committed but their proficiency has been less against the big boys.
The Dawgs did not get rid of Mark Richt to go 8-5. I am not saying they are going to win a title but this is the season they could have a breakthrough with a defense returning 10 starters and of offense with a terrific 1-2 punch at running back in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.
Jacob Eason was very highly touted as a frosh but had a mediocre season.
He needs to be more accurate but you wonder if that defense and that running game might mean that they won’t ask him to win too many game.
Especially with an offensive line that is going to have to prove itself.
Georgia is a significant favourite here and deservedly so. That defense should really give App State some troubles and might even outscore the Mountaineers.
The offense could look good too but don’t get caught reading too much into it or else next week you might crash and burn.

I am really optimistic about Georgia right now. This is going to be my first chance to see them and I am pretty confidence they can beat Appalachian State by double digits.
I just hope they don’t take their foot off the gas.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia -14
They key will be Georgia asserting their dominance early and forcing the Mountaineers to attack through the air.
If they can shut down their running game than they should be able to create some turnovers and short field that will help an offense that might not be operating super smoothly to start the season.
