Appalachian State Mountaineers
The Mountaineers weren’t perfect last week but they managed to say perfect in the Sun Belt Conference with a 37–29 win over Coastal Carolina.
App State got out to a lead but floundered in the middle portion of the game, giving that lead back to the Chanticleers. But Taylor Lamb got things together for his offense and ended up throwing two touchdown passes in the comeback win.
Lamb’s two touchdown tosses gave him 76 in his App State career, which makes him the school’s all-time leader. He finished Saturday’s game with 427 yards through the air.
The Mountaineers will, of course, be out of conference this week at UMass. They are a perfect 4–0 in the Sun Belt and hold a half-game lead over Arkansas State, who is attempting to get to 4–0 at New Mexico State this weekend.
The Minutemen do not play in a conference, one of four FBS Independents this season. They are also the worst of the bunch. UMass managed to win its first game of the season last week, however, with a 55–20 win over Georgia Southern.
It had been six straight losses to open the season for Massachusetts before it racked up 670 total yards of offense at home against the Eagles.
Two Minutemen ran for over 100 yards and both quarterbacks threw for at least 150.
Thing is, one of those teams was bound to get its first win in that game. Georgia Southern entered the game 0–5 and was down 28–7 after the first quarter.
Appalachian State will be a much different challenge for the Minutemen, who would like to build a little momentum by at least keeping it close this week.

This one doesn’t seem hard. App State does have to travel but it has the much better team that still has further aspirations other than just finishing the season alive. The 3.5 isn’t too much to spare.
