The Mountaineers (6-2, 4-0 Sun Belt) became bowl eligible with last week’s 34-10 win at Georgia Southern and are unbeaten in Sun Belt Conference play halfway through the conference schedule. App hosts Texas State on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Reserved Tickets are sold out. General admission tickets are still available.
Last season, App became the first FBS team to win a bowl game in their first season of bowl eligibility with a come-from-behind win over Ohio, 31-29. App sold out their allotment of tickets for the game and trip to the Camellia Bowl in Montgomery, Ala. The Mountaineers’ 11 wins were a record for a first-year program in the FBS.
