Appalachian State (2-2) vs. Georgia State (0-3) Game Preview


Date: Saturday, Oct. 1
Game Time: 12:00 pm
Venue: Kidd Brewer Stadium, Boone NC
Network: ESPN3

The Mountaineers roared back from a drubbing against Miami with a big-time offensive performance against a dangerous Akron team. Can they start out the Sun Belt schedule hot? Can they overcome the likely absence of star RB Marcus Cox to a leg problem?

Georgia State might be 0-3, but it’s a plucky 0-3. The offense did a better job against Wisconsin than Michigan State was able to do, and that’s the claim to fame so far – the Panthers pushed the Badgers in Madison.

However, the offense isn’t putting points on the board to overcome the problems with the run defense. Granted, playing Air Force and Wisconsin will skew the stats, but the defensive front didn’t come close against Ball State, either.

Fortunately for ASU, not having Cox should be okay as long as Jalin Moore builds off his 257-yard, two score day against Akron. The 5-11, 205-pounder is compact enough to handle the ball for 39 carries again.

He ran for almost double the yards Georgia State has rushed for all year long. The Mountaineers will be fine.
