Appalachian State vs Marshall Game Preview

Why Appalachian State Will Win

Yeah, the Marshall run defense has been special lately. It’s about to see something different with the Appalachian State ground game.

That doesn’t mean the Mountaineers can’t stall – they sure did in the loss to Coastal Carolina – but when they’re on, forget it.

5-1 when they run for more than 90 yards, they’re going to keep forcing the issue against a Marshall defensive front that’s totally dominant against good ground attacks.

However, thanks to Chase Brice, Appalachian State can throw, too.

10 Best Picks Against The Spread

Why Marshall Will Win

The run defense really is just that special.

James Madison stopped Appalachian State cold, Texas State was able to come up with a ton of big plays, and Coastal Carolina did the job.

Yeah, Appalachian State ran well on Texas A&M and ripped through North Carolina, but the Marshall run defense is just that good.

As long as the offense can limit the turnovers and get its own ground game going …

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Both teams are 5-4, and both teams are struggling to get over the finish line and get bowl eligible, but Marshall has to win two of its last three.

Yeah, the Marshall run defense has been incredible at home, but two of the best performances came at home against FCS teams. Louisiana and Coastal Carolina were able to win even though they stalled.

Can Marshall score enough? Appalachian State is 5-0 when allowing 28 points or fewer and 0-4 when allowing more.

Marshall only scored more than 26 against one FBS team, Bowling Green. Appalachian State is better.

Appalachian State vs Coastal Carolina Game Preview

Why Appalachian State Will Win

The running game has been rolling again.

When this thing works, Appalachian State starts running, keeps running, and it comes up with 200 yards with gashing runs helped with a slew of dangerous backs getting in some work.

It ran over Georgia State for over 400 yards, kept the momentum going against Robert Morris in a scrimmage last week, and now it gets a Coastal Carolina defense that’s been great overall but got hammered by Old Dominion for 320 rushing yards in a loss a few weeks ago.

The Mountaineers have to own the narrative. Coastal Carolina wins when it dominates on third downs, wins the time of possession battle in lopsided fashion, and takes over the turnover battle.

Appalachian State has the talent to win in all three of those phases.

But …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 9

Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

There are problems when Appalachian State isn’t running wild.

It’s got the ability to throw, but that’s not how this all works. The 63-61 opener against North Carolina was a crazy outlier. The other two losses this season to James Madison and Texas State came when the ground game failed to get to 100 yards. Those happened to be the only two games all year the Mountaineers turned it over multiple times.

Coastal Carolina turned it over four times against Buffalo and twice against Gardner-Webb – and won both games. It gave the ball away just three times in the other five games and has forced multiple takeaways five times.

Appalachian State will be able to run, but the Chanticleers should be balanced enough to control the game throughout, but …

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Give Coastal Carolina credit for rebuilding quickly and coming up with a fantastic record, but it hasn’t quite dealt with the teams Appalachian State has.

From the shootout against North Carolina, to the win over Texas A&M, getting by a Troy defense that – as it turns out – is amazing, the Mountaineers have seen and done more. They should be solid as long as they don’t turn it over multiple times.

Georgia State vs Appalachian State Game Preview

Why Georgia State Will Win

Appalachian State was supposed to be the Sun Belt’s killer running team this year, and it’s turning out to be Georgia State.

The Panthers can throw a little bit when they have to, but the veteran combination of backs and quarterback Darren Grainger are starting to take over.

Army ran for more yards, but Georgia State was more effective on the ground in the 31-14 win. It ripped through Georgia Southern for 336 yards, and they’re combining it with a defense that takes the ball away by the truckload.

It’s a great combination that turned the season around, but …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 7

Why Appalachian State Will Win

The Georgia State offense is almost never on the field. For a team that runs the ball as effectively as any in the country, it doesn’t do a thing to control the clock.

The Panthers are dead last in the nation in time of possession partly because they can’t come up with a third down stop. They make up for it with takeaways.

And that’s it. That’s everything for an Appalachian State that’s better than Texas State, but lost last week with two turnovers and 12 penalties. It gave up the ball twice in the loss to James Madison and once against North Carolina.

It’s 3-0 when it doesn’t turn the ball over and 0-3 when it does.

However, it can play a little offense, too, averaging 445 yards per game, and  …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Appalachian State will turn the ball over, but it’ll break the pattern by holding up against the run. The Panthers might be running well, but Appalachian State will do it better.

The passing game has gone off for the Mountaineers, but they’re at their best when they’re ripping off yards in chunks. They’ll do a little of everything in a high-scoring shootout.

College football: How little known Lindenwood was one play from beating mighty Alabama

Have you ever heard of Lindenwood? And how did they almost beat Alabama?

Much is made of parity in college football and in recent years how if it isn’t Alabama or Clemson, then it isn’t great.  Georgia added their first national title in four decades last year and is in contention to do it again along with other powers like Ohio State, Michigan, the aforementioned Alabama and Georgia who are log-jammed towards the top of the national ratings.

Does parity in college football exist?

If you answered no to that question I am in complete agreement with you.

However, if you answered yes I don’t think you’re wrong either.

Perhaps I’ll do a thought-piece on that later that goes a little more in-depth of how I can see both being true, but with parity on our mind what would you say if I told you that little-known and currently 3-2 Lindenwood was one play away from beating the currently top-ranked in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll, Alabama Crimson Tide?

You’d likely ask, “what’s a Lindenwood?” but let me explain.

College Football: Most surprising storylines at the halfway point of the season

The 2022 college football season has been full of surprises.

In the flash of an eye, we have already made it to the halfway point of the 2022 college football season.

We have seen enough football played to have an idea of who entered the season overrated, underrated and who is in contention for the College Football Playoff heading down the stretch. The usual suspects of Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia and Clemson are all looking good for a playoff spot while a few newcomers are trying to knock them off.

College football has treated fans to a fantastic state so thus far. A number of intriguing storylines have taken place through six weeks of action. We have seen multiple coach firings, massive upsets and so much more.

The beginning of the year has set us fans up for an exciting conclusion to the 2022 campaign.

Here is a look at eight of the most surprising storylines we have witnessed this college football season.

Appalachian State vs Texas State Game Preview

Why Appalachian State Will Win

Everyone sort of jumped off the Appalachian State ship after the loss to James Madison, but this still might be the best team in the Sun Belt – the showdown with Coastal Carolina is up in a few weeks – with a running game that continues to be amazing and a defense that’s holding up just fine.

There aren’t any turnovers to give Texas State any breaks, the efficient passing game feeds off all the ground game can do, and Texas State will have a hard time keeping up with any of it.

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why Texas State Will Win

It’s been a rough run against good teams, but the defense is aggressive enough to force takeaways and the secondary is holding up well enough.

The pass defense is among the best in the Sun Belt and does a great job on third downs. Can the offense get its passing attack going?

The offense pivoted a bit and is better at controlling the clock, the running game has to get into a groove from the start, and …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Texas State won’t be able to stop the Appalachian State ground game.

The Mountaineers aren’t going to take many chances. Chase Brice and the passing attack will keep everything safe and let the great rotation of running backs take care of he rest.

Appalachian State will run for 250 yards and won’t have too many problems after the first half.

Appalachian State vs The Citadel Game Preview

Why The Citadel Will Win

The Bulldogs are going to run, they’re going to control the clock, and they’re going to try grinding down this game to a low-scoring nub.

They’re not going to screw up with a slew of turnovers, they’ll hold up well on third downs, they have a way of keeping games from getting out of hand.

Appalachian State’s running game is coming off a horrible day in the loss to James Madison, the defense isn’t coming up with interceptions, and …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Appalachian State Will Win

The Citadel doesn’t score.

It doesn’t have any pop or upside whatsoever with the passing game, and it has no ability to mount a comeback if it gets down. It has scored just 30 points in three games and hasn’t come up with more than one touchdown in any quarter.

Yeah, Appalachian State’s running game was held under wraps by JMU last week. Here comes the balanced offense looking to get it all back after a strange few weeks, and …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Finally, Appalachian State will have an easy game.

All four so far have been crazy thrill rides, but this one will be over after a few drives. The Mountaineer running game will take over in the first quarter, and – with no passing game – The Citadel won’t have any shot at pulling back to make this interesting.

James Madison vs Appalachian State Game Preview

Why James Madison Will Win

Okay, James Madison. Just how real are you?

Who leads the nation in total defense? Who leads the nation in run defense? Who leads the nation in tackles for loss per game? Who has yet to turn the ball over?

The Dukes are just 2-0, and one of the wins was against Norfolk State, but they ripped a Middle Tennessee team 44-7 that might just be good enough to go bowling.

Rested with two weeks off, James Madison should bring the offensive balance, and they should bring the energy against an Appalachian State team that has to be a tad bit fried.

Seriously, the North Carolina shootout, and then the Texas A&M win, and then GameDay and the Hail Mary win over Troy – this team has been through a lot, but …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Appalachian State Will Win

The Mountaineers are playing great.

They seemed a bit flat at times against the Trojans, but the defense was great against the run and the offense was able to get a big enough game – helped by that last throw – out of Chase Brice to survive.

The team isn’t beating itself. There has been just one turnover so far, penalties aren’t a problem, and the O is moving the chains.

But …

10 Best Predictions Against the Spread

What’s Going To Happen

Look … out.

James Madison might be new to the FBS party, but it’s no joke. It might not be the best team in the Sun Belt, but it’s going to come up with a winning season and annoy all the conference teams that have a shot to do something fun this year.

The Dukes are going to bring the defense that can hold up, and the offensive balance will keep things moving. App State will survive – and it’s not going to take a last second play to do it – but it’s going to be a grind in a fun battle.

‘I love that guy’: Swinney, Streeter really proud of Chase Brice

After Chase Brice pulled off his latest heroics last Saturday – lifting Appalachian State to a miraculous 32-28 victory over Troy with a 53-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass on the game’s final play – Dabo Swinney had a message for the former Clemson quarterback.

“I called him and said he and I need to go to Vegas, like, right now,” Swinney said this week. “Man, unbelievable. Unbelievable. His comment was ‘winners win,’ and I loved it.”

Clemson’s head coach believes that comment perfectly sums up Brice, who of course is fondly remembered by Tiger fans for stepping up during the 2018 national championship campaign, relieving an injured Trevor Lawrence in a 27-23 come-from-behind victory against Syracuse to preserve what would become a perfect 15-0 campaign.

“That’s Chase to the core, man. He’s a winner,” Swinney said. “I’m really happy for him, really proud of him. He’s a great young man and has just become a great leader for (App State). You can just see everybody around him, they all believe in him. He’s just one of those guys that finds a way, he finds a way. That’s who he is. I love that guy, man. He’s a good one.”

After playing for Clemson from 2017-19 and graduating in May 2020, Brice transferred to Duke, where he threw for 2,170 yards while passing for 10 touchdowns in 11 starts during the 2020 season.

Since transferring to App State before the 2021 season, Brice has led the Mountaineers to a 12-5 record in 17 games as their starting quarterback while starting all 14 games at quarterback last season and the first three this season.

Last season, he was named the Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year and earned All-Sun Belt third team honors after finishing the season with 27 touchdown passes (tied for the Sun Belt lead), 238.4 passing yards per game (No. 3 in the Sun Belt), a 62.1 completion percentage (No. 3 in the Sun Belt), a 151.1 rating (No. 3 in the Sun Belt) and 8.6 yards per pass attempt (No. 2 in the Sun Belt).

In 2021, Brice set App State’s single-season record for passing yards with a league-leading 3,337 to break the previous school record of 3,291 set by Armanti Edwards.

A week prior to his Hail Mary against Troy, Brice and the Mountaineers pulled off a major upset, defeating then-No. 6 Texas A&M on the road on Sept. 10 by a score of 17-14.

As someone who knows Brice very well, his former quarterbacks coach, Clemson’s Brandon Streeter, said this week that he’s “so proud” of him.

“He’s been an awesome kid. I love that guy,” Streeter said. “We had a great relationship when we were here, and I’m just happy that he’s happy. He’s doing some really, really good stuff. He’s at a great program with App State, and man, it was exciting to watch. I saw the replay of that last play, the Hail Mary play, and it’s really a great teaching moment for a lot of programs out there, how important that last play is and why you work it every single week.

“But just to see him succeed like he’s doing has been really, really special. And then not just this week but last week against Texas A&M, being able to come out on top. I’m just excited for him and his journey. Everybody’s got a different journey and his journey is paying off, and it really comes down to him putting in the work and being positive throughout the whole journey.”
