Appalachian State (7-3) vs. ULM (4-6) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Nov. 19
Game Time: 2:30 pm
Network: Kidd Brewer Stadium, Boone, NC
Arkansas State and Appalachian State don’t play, meaning winning the Sun Belt title might be off the table for the Mountaineers without a ton of luck.
But even with the heartbreaking loss to Troy last week, the Mountaineers have had a great season and should get one of the Sun Belt’s better bowl spots, while only needing to hit the two-foot putts against ULM and New Mexico State to get into range of a ten-win season.
Now the Mountaineers have to maintain their focus and not screw up offensively, because the defense shouldn’t have too many issues.
ULM lost QB Garrett Smith for the year, meaning Caleb Evans will get the most work again after taking over the gig over the last few weeks. He threw three touchdown passes in the shocker against South Alabama, but struggled last week against Georgia State.
However, ULM has turned the season around with the running game started to pick it up. The last two wins were helped by Thomas Koufie, a freshman who tore off 201 yards and five scores against Georgia State last week, and needs to control the game from the start against ASU.
That’s not going to happen.
The Mountaineer offensive balance will be too good from the start, and in the last home game of the season, the ASU defense will be a rock against Koufie and the run.
