Appalachian State vs Marshall Preview
After a pair of double-digit win seasons, Appalachian State entered the year with a high-level of expectations — the No. 24 ranking in the AP Poll evidence of that. The team’s opener against Charlotte might have been a little closer than they had imagined, needing two fourth-quarter touchdowns to pull away for the 35-20 victory. Now the Mountaineers turn their attention to Marshall.
“Our goal is to be 1-0, and I told them yesterday in our team meeting that the Charlotte game is gone, and we reached our goal about being 1-0. And we’ll go week by week,” Mountaineers head coach Shawn Clark. “Again, playing Marshall, our goal is to be 1-0. We’ll keep it here in the present and let the future hold what it holds.”
The Mountaineers did what they do best in the matchup against Charlotte and ran the ball. Appalachian State had 50 rushing attempts for 308 yards and a whopping 6.2 yards per carry average.
“We have the outside zone and the inside zone, and it’s kind of like making bread,” Clark said. “You just have to start caressing it a little bit, rubbing it here, rubbing it there. Put it in there, let it rise and that’s the beauty of it. We never got impatient with it.”
A key for the Mountaineers will be slowing down Marshall quarterback Grant Wells, who amassed 307 yards and 4 touchdowns in his debut. He led the Thundering Herd to eight touchdowns and a field goal in the 59-0 season-opening victory against Eastern Kentucky.
“One thing that we take really seriously is facing adversity when it comes. Last week, it seems we did not have a lot of adversity, but we know it is coming,” Wells said. “It is a great team coming in next week. We are going to face a great defense and offense. When the adversity comes, how are we going to handle it, and that is going to be a big focus this week in practice.”
He’s got the attention of App State, as well.
“Reynolds is a heck of a football player, and he can extend plays,” Clark said. “And you saw that last year, so we just tried to keep him in the pocket as best we could and knowing he was going to make a few plays, but we had to limit the big plays.”
Appalachian State is a 5-point road favorite for the matchup. The total is set at 59.5 points. The Mountaineers, who are the reigning Sun Belt champions, are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Conference USA conference.
