2017 Appalachian State Mountaineers Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

Everything breaks right in the opener at Georgia that didn’t in the loss to Tennessee to start out last season, and the Mountaineers pull off the monumental upset to kick things off. After hammering Savannah State by 60 and rolling by Texas State in the Sun Belt opener, they get past Wake Forest at home to set the tone for a special run. With six of the last eight games against teams that didn’t go bowling last year – and those two against Idaho on the road and Louisiana-Lafayette at home – ASU pulls off the dream season and goes 12-0 with a Sun Belt title. More realistically, though, 11-1 is the best case scenario.

ASU gets rocked by Georgia and loses to Wake Forest on the way to a 3-2 start, and then drops the road game at Idaho for a disappointing opening six weeks. Shocked by ULM on the road at the end of a run of three road games in four weeks, they split the Georgia Southern and Georgia State games before dropping the regular season finale against Louisiana-Lafayette for a mediocre 6-6 season.
