The East division of the Sun Belt Conference will be decided in the final game of the season. The winner of this game will get the opportunity to play for the Sun Belt title next weekend.
This will be the fourth all time meeting between the Trojans and the Mountaineers. Appalachian State has won two of the three previous meetings. Troy won the last meeting in 2016, 28-24.
Troy barely managed to win their game last week against Texas State. With last weeks win, it gives them a conference record of 7-0. They now have to travel to a hostile environment in Boone, North Carolina for the chance to clinch a spot in the title game for the second season in a row.
The offense for Troy clearly had trouble last week as they only manged 220 total yards. They also did not score a single touchdown and managed to score just four field goals. They will need much more production out of the offense in Boone if they are going to knock off a solid Mountaineers squad.
The defense was one of the sole reasons Troy managed to stay in the game against Texas State and ended up winning. They forced five interceptions, which killed the Bobcats field position multiple times. They also forced two fumbles, but only actually recovered one. If the Trojans can play this level of defense against the Mountaineers, they will have a good chance to win.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
The Mountaineers blew out Georgia State last week to keep them in the Sun Belt title race. They now are 8-2 overall and post a conference record of 6-1.
The Mountaineers have actually been very solid on offense throughout this season. They average 38.9 points per game, and 246.6 rushing yards per game. If they can get their run game established early, they should be able to move past Troy for the East division title.
As a defense, the Mountaineers post some of the best stats in all of division one football. They allow 282.9 total yards per game, which ranks 7th in the country. They also hold their opponents to 15.9 points per game, which ranks 7th as well. They are most successful at defending the pass and rank 4th, allowing 152.3 passing yards per game.
