The Appalachian State Mountaineers will take on the Troy Trojans on Saturday at the Kidd Brewer Stadium in the NCAA.

Both teams have won one and lost one game so far this season and are looking to gain momentum and push on through the season.

The Mountaineers have played out two close games. In their opening encounter against the North Carolina Tar Heels, they lost 61-63 in a nail-biting affair.

Their second game of the season against the Texas A&M Aggies was even closer.

At the end of the third quarter, the game was all square at 14-14. However, once again a solid fourth-quarter performance helped the Mountaineers pull away with a three-point lead to win 17-14.

Brice completed 22 of 34 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns. Horn had five catches for 98 yards.

Watson completed 23 of 37 passes for 302 yards with one interception for the Trojans. Troy rushed for only 57 yards on 28 carries.

They looked down and out at the end of the third quarter but came back and mounted a serious push for the win. Despite a 40-21 final quarter, they fell just short.
