The Mountaineers (6-4, 5-1 Sun Belt) became bowl eligible with last week’s 27-6 home win at Georgia Southern and are part of first-place tie with two regular season games remaining. Appalachian State plays at Georgia State on November 25 at 2:00 p.m. in Atlanta and hosts Louisiana at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, when Senior Day will be celebrated at Kidd Brewer Stadium.
With Camellia Bowl victories in 2015 and 2016, Appalachian State became the first team to win bowl games in each of its first two eligible seasons.
