The kings of the Sun Belt, the Appalachian State Mountaineers, are hoping that a fairly unpredictable 2020 season can’t slow down their continued run of success.

Their 2020 TV schedule isn’t completely finalized, but Appalachian State games will likely be televised on either CBS Sports Network, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or ESPN+.

You’ll need a subscription to watch any ESPN+ games, but here’s how to watch every other Appalachian State football game live online without cable in 2020:

Watch Appalachian State Football on ESPN+

Note: These games are exclusive to ESPN+ and can’t be watched via any other streaming service

It’s unclear at this point how many Appalachian State games will be on ESPN+ since the TV schedule isn’t finalized. App State had six games on ESPN+ last year, but since there are less teams playing this season, there’s more room for them on the regular ESPN channels, which likely means less games on ESPN+.

But there’s at least one ESPN+ game on the schedule already, so for that one and any others, you can sign up and watch right here:

Get ESPN+

In addition to many exclusive college football games and other college sports, ESPN+ includes UFC events, international soccer (Bundesliga, Serie A, FA Cup, Carabo Cup and more), Top Rank boxing, Grand Slam tennis tournaments, MLB, NHL and MLS, plus all the 30-for-30 documentaries and additional original content (both video and written) all for $5.99 per month.

Or, if you also want the new Disney+ streaming service and Hulu (you could then upgrade Hulu to Hulu With Live TV for Appalachian State’s other games), you can get all three for $12.99 per month, which works out to about 31 percent savings:

Get the ESPN+, Disney+ and Hulu Bundle

Once signed up for ESPN+, you can then watch games live on the ESPN app on your Roku, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV or Firestick, Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iPhone, Android phone, iPad or Android tablet. Or you can watch on your computer via ESPN.com.

Appalachian State Football Preview 2020

Last year, the Mountaineers posted a 13-1 overall record and a 7-1 mark in Sun Belt play, claiming a conference title and closing the campaign with a victory over the UAB Blazers in the New Orleans Bowl.

Head coach Eliah Drinkwitz, following less than one full season at the helm, departed for the Missouri Tigers ahead of that finale. The school promoted associate head coach Shawn Clark to the top job ahead of the bowl win.

“I’m very prepared for this opportunity,” Clark said this offseason, according to The News Herald. “We’re going to play a very aggressive style of offense and defense and let the cards fall where they fall.”

The 2019 season included road victories over two Power Five squads in the UNC Tar Heels and the South Carolina Gamecocks.

As the schedule stands now, however, this year’s squad won’t get a chance to topple a Power Five program during the 2020 regular season; the COVID-19 pandemic led to the cancellations of four games, including tilts with Power Five sides the Wisconsin Badgers and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

“It sucks,” Mountaineers quarterback Zac Thomas said, according to ESPN. “Being at App, we still have a lot to prove. At App, you’re not the team everyone talks about. You have to gain your respect. That respect will be missing this year.”

App State was set to receive $1.2 million for visiting the Badgers in Madison.

“Our guys were excited to go play at Wisconsin in a great environment, and Wake Forest is an hour-and-a-half down the road,” App State athletic director Doug Gillin said, per ESPN. “Our fan base was super excited.”

Last year’s Mountaineers scored 38.8 points per game and surrendered 20 per game, ranking ninth and 21st out of 130 FBS squads.

Thomas completed 62.7 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 28 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He ran in another 7 scores to lead all Sun Belt players in total touchdowns.

In August, the senior was tabbed for the conference’s preseason offensive player of the year award. He claimed the end-of-season honor in 2018, then watched his teammate, running back Darrynton Evans, take it last season. Evans then departed for the NFL, getting selected by the Tennessee Titans in the draft’s third round.

This time around, Thomas will be without one of favorite targets in senior wideout Corey Sutton, who elected to sit out the 2020 campaign; he’ll be eligible to return in 2021.

Sutton led last year’s team with 7 touchdown catches despite suffering a season-ending ACL tear in their ninth game.

“He told me in my office that he’d be back at Appalachian State in ’21,” Clark said, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. “I told him I loved him, he said he loved me, and we’d see you in ’21.”
