Nov. 6, 2014. The Appalachian State Mountaineers look to win three games in a row for the first time in the ASU head coach Scott Satterfield ere when the Mountaineers face off against the University of Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, Nov. 8.

After a poor start, going 1-5 in its first six games of the 2014-15 season, the Mountaineers have won two straight, and they won them decisively, outscoring Troy University and Georgia State University by a combined 83 points. The Mountaineers squashed Troy University 53-14, and blanked Georgia State 44-0.

Meanwhile University of Louisiana-Monroe is coming off of four-straight losses. Its latest loss, however, came to Texas A&M at College Station, Tex. ULM lost by only five points and held the SEC team to only 21 points on Nov. 1. In week seven, Texas A&M was ranked as high as No. 6 in ESPN polls, but it has since fallen out of the Top 25 with a current 6-3 record.
