Appalachian State was won 21 games over the past two seasons and could post double-digit victories yet again. The offense features plenty of weapons and experience up front while the defense doesn’t lack for playmakers on all three levels either. Scott Satterfield’s team not only appears to be the best team in the Sun Belt, these Mountaineers also will have a shot against both Georgia and Wake Forest to secure another victory against a Power 5 opponent. Sun Belt or not, no team should take Appalachian State lightly this fall.

With 27 wins as a starting quarterback, Taylor Lamb gives Appalachian State a proven weapon. The problem for Mountaineers opponents, though, is that he’s far from the only one. Lamb, the son of Mercer coach Bobby Lamb, knows how to keep the Mountaineers’ offense clicking, accounting for 24 total touchdowns last season. “He’s seen it all as a starter,” coach Scott Satterfield says. “He’s very mature. ...He’s got all the intangibles.”
