    Nov. 11, 2016 TROY, Ala. — It was probably the most important game of the Scott Satterfield coaching era, two years ago when Appalachian State played Troy at Veteran Memorial Stadium.

    App State’s lone win had been against a non-scholarship Football Championship Subdivision from Campbell University and the Mountaineers were coming off a disastrous 55-48 overtime loss at home against FCS Liberty.

    Something needed to change and needed to improve fast in the seemingly bleak Appalachian program. By David Coulson / Read more…
