  • Coulson: App Visits Georgia State at Noon

    Oct. 1, 2016. Confidence can be an intriguing concept. Since the middle of the 2014 season, Appalachian State has gone 13-1 in Sun Belt Conference play and in the past two years, there hasn’t been a league team the Mountaineers have dominated so throughly as Georgia State. Two years ago, ASU played inhospitable hosts, beating the Panthers 44-0 during a snowstorm at Kidd Brewer Stadium. And last season, the Mountaineers turned the Georgia Dome into a de facto home game on the way to a 37-3 victory. By David Coulson / Read more…

    Sept. 23, 2016. Appalachian State knew heading into the 2016 college football season that it would be facing the toughest non-conference schedule in its history.
