If you like the following things in your college football
- plenty of points from both teams
- long-distance scoring plays
- the potential for the Little Guy to beat the (kinda sorta) Big Guy
then you will love App State v. ECU. There are players from both sides that will wind up in the NFL over the next few seasons and you’ll have your first glimpse of those players in this game. Plus, ASU is one of the better-coached off-the-radar teams in America, while the Pirates are one of the most undisciplined, erratic, unpredictable teams you’ll watch this season. That ECU trait equates to big plays for both teams.
Michigan-Alabama, Auburn-Clemson, Boise and Michigan State . . . they all have allure, obviously. But your exciting, high-scoring upset special is Appalachian State beating ECU.
