The Thursday, standalone college football game is supposed to be a tune-up for the weekend. Appalachian State backers might be out of commission through Saturday.

Leading Marshall by one point, Appalachian State, a 7.5-point favorite, had the ball in Herd territory with time winding down in the fourth.

A first down salts the game, but a touchdown puts the Mountaineers up by eight.

Roll the tape.

Meanwhile in CFB…

That’s Appalachian State running back Nate Noel, who doesn’t want Mountaineer bettors to afford Christmas presents. The offense naturally went into victory mode and sealed the deal.

To be fair, the Mountaineers were lucky to win the game outright.

They trailed by nine in the fourth, before notching a touchdown and would-be game-winning field goal off the foot of Chandler Staton with 5:45 remaining.

That could have been the fourth straight cover for first-year Appalachian State head coach Shawn Clark. Nonetheless, it goes down as a win for a program.

And a huge L for anyone who laid the 7.5.
