  • Appalachian State Football Again Featured in Sports Illustrated After Penn State Game

    September 13, 2018 Appalachian State University’s football program was featured with a long cover story and superlative pictures in arguably the most famous sports magazine of all-time, Sports Illustrated, after pulling off perhaps the biggest upset in college history on September 1, 2007. The Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Mountaineers shocked the college football world then by beating traditional major college power Michigan 34-32 in Ann Arbor to warrant such big-time publicity. The Wolverines entered that game ranked Number 5 in both major Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) polls and media outlets considered them to be preseason favorites to win the Big Ten Conference championship as well as possibly the national championship.  Appalachian State was ranked No. 1 in The Sports Network’s FCS poll and was the preseason favorite to win a third consecutive national championship on that level. For their herculean efforts against Penn State, Sports Illustrated has again included the Mountaineers in a story. Entitled “Into The Lions Den,” it appears in this week’s issue dated September 10. The article begins on page 29 and was written by Andy Staples. It’s 2,242 words in length and covers seven pages with two showing Appalachian State players. By Tim Gardner / Read more…

  • App State Roars Back from Fourth Quarter Deficit, But Falls 45-38 in Overtime to Tenth-Ranked Penn State


    Sept. 2, 2018 On September 1, 2007, then Division I-AA Appalachian State shocked the college football world with perhaps its greatest upset in history by beating Division One and Big Ten Conference traditional power Michigan in Ann Arbor. And on September 1, 2018– the 11-year anniversary of that milestone victory– the Mountaineers nearly recorded their second biggest upset ever, which ironically was against another Big Ten opponent on the road. But tenth-ranked Penn State pulled out a 45-38 overtime win in front of 105,232 fans at Beaver Stadium. “That (this game) was a resounding yes that we won’t back down, we will keep fighting,” Appalachian State head coach Scott Satterfield said. “That’s the heart of our program for the last 30 years.

  • End of an Era: Watauga hosts Avery County for 50th and Possibly Final Time


    August 31, 2018. At least for now, the Watauga and Avery County football rivalry is coming to a close this Friday night as the Vikings travel to Boone to take on the Pioneers. The two teams do not have each other on the schedule after the 2018 season with Avery County deciding against continuing the rivalry. “I think we needed to play some schools our size to get back to where we need to be. There’s a big difference between having 1,400 kids and having 580 kids,” said Avery County head coach Mac Bryan. “We will certainly entertain bringing the series back in a couple years and hopefully that will be the case.” The feeling isn’t quite the same coming from Watauga’s point of view. “They (Avery) elected not to play us anymore. You never say never but it’s not something that’s going to be renewed for a while,” said Watauga head coach Ryan Habich. By Nathan Ham / Read more…

  • Appalachian State Opens 2018 Football Season Saturday with Monumental Task at Penn State


    August 29, 2018. Like last year, the Appalachian State Mountaineers will play one of major college football’s all-time winningest programs and perennial powerhouses to open the 2018 season. The Mountaineers lost 31-10 at then 15th-ranked Georgia in the 2017 season opener and travels to tenth-ranked Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) for a showdown this Saturday. It will mark the first time Appalachian State and Penn State have met on the gridiron. College football enthusiasts may point out the Appalachian State all-timer upset over Michigan to open up the 2007 season as a reason why another major upset could happen to start out the 2018 campaign. But the Mountaineers are no longer a high-end Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program. They now make up one of the more recent successful major level Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) programs.  By Tim Gardner / Read more…
