What to Know
The Appalachian State Mountaineers have the luxury of staying home another week and will welcome the Robert Morris Colonials at 3:30 p.m. ET Oct. 29 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Appalachian State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 50-point (!) margin of victory.
The Mountaineers made easy work of the Georgia State Panthers last week and carried off a 42-17 win. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 14 to nothing deficit. It was another big night for Appalachian State's RB Camerun Peoples, who rushed for two TDs and 168 yards on 23 carries.
Appalachian State's defense was a presence as well, as it collected one interception and three fumbles. LB Tyler Bird picked up that interception and then proceeded to rub salt in the wound by taking it back the other way for a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough matchup for Robert Morris last week, and boy were they were right. They suffered a grim 38-14 defeat to the North Carolina A&T Aggies. Robert Morris was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 30 to nothing.
This next contest looks promising for the Mountaineers, who are favored by a full 50 points. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last Wednesday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Appalachian State's victory lifted them to 4-3 while Robert Morris' defeat dropped them down to 0-7. We'll see if Appalachian State can repeat their recent success or if the Colonials bounce back and reverse their fortune.
