Arkansas State vs. Appalachian State, a conference game between the Mountaineers of the EAST division and the Red Wolves of the WEST division. The visitors have the advantage of having won a game at the conference just before this game against the Red Wolves. The home team is looking for its first win of the conference with a QB star and a positive historical record against the Mountaineers.
Appalachian State: We’re the surprise.
The Mountaineers have played well this season, 3 wins and one defeat. The worst of the season so far for them has been losing in the first week against Penn State, but it was not a painful defeat on the road, in fact the team lost game only by 38-45, they were fighting until the last moment. The history against Arkansas is different, against them they have played twice, in 2014 32-37 and 2015 40-27, a victory at home (2015) and the defeat was on the road.
Zac Thomas is the QB starter who has given the Mountaineers an efficiency in passes they did not have for a long time. His best game this season was against the Charlotte 49ers with 100% ERA for 14-14 in passes. Against Penn State it was the most difficult game for him, but he maintained a 65% efficiency with 25-38 in passes. The effectiveness against South Alabama was below 50% with 44% and 8 complete passes of 18, but that was enough for the team to win that game.
Arkansas State: We want to win at home.
The Red Wolves have 3 wins and 2 losses, they did not play the sixth week to rest. The two games at home were relatively easy, the first against Southeast Missouri State 48-21, and the second game at home was against UNLV 27-20. At home they are defending well, but the two defeats were on the road against teams of less difficulty. One of the defeats was a conference game, the last game of the regular season so far, they lost to Georgia Southern Eagles 21-28.
Justice Hansen is the offensive player of the Sun Belt conference, his effectiveness this year has been superior to previous games in past seasons. an average of 70% in the 5 games of this season, being the highest effectiveness against Georgia Southern with 76% for 38-50 completions but that did not help to win the game.
