The Appalachian State Mountaineers homestand continues as they prepare to face the Robert Morris Colonials at 3:30 p.m. ET on October 29 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Appalachia State should still be riding high after a big win, while Robert Morris will be looking to get back into the win column.
It all went well for the Mountaineers against the Georgia State Panthers last week as they picked up a 42-17 win. The win came on the back of a strong push after the first quarter to overcome a 14-to-none deficit. RB Cameroon Peoples had a stellar game for Appalachian State as they rushed for two touchdowns and 168 yards on 23 carries.
Appalachia State’s defense was also in attendance, as they had one interception and three fumbles. LB Tyler Bird picked up that interception and then rubbed salt into the wound by driving it the other way for a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Robert Morris was expected to struggle last week, and, well, they did. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of a nasty 38-14 punch against the North Carolina A&T Aggies. The Colonials were in a difficult position at half-time, with the score already 30-0.
Robert Morris’ loss put them down to 0-7 while Appalachian State’s win took them down to 4-3. We’ll see if Robert Morris can steal the Mountaineers’ chance or if Appalachian State scores another win instead.
