The Mountaineers could eclipse a school record if they move up higher than No. 20 in the AP poll. Their current ranking tied a school record set earlier this season before they briefly fell out of the top 25 with their only loss to division rival Georgia Southern.
Lafayette: After limiting the Mountaineers to 17 points and keeping Evans in check in the first meeting, the Ragin' Cajuns didn't seem remotely prepared for what was coming this time around. Their defensive line got nearly no penetration on the QB, and when they did they were fooled by screen passes. Giving up five TDs on five possessions is never a good look, although they did keep App State in check in the second half.
Appalachian State: The Mountaineers looked like a well-oiled machine on offense with its big front controlling the line of scrimmage by blowing off the ball. There wasn't anything the Mountaineers couldn't do right - run up the middle, run wide or throw the ball - in the first half. The Mountaineers had a scary moment when Thomas just hit on a sack-fumble in the third quarter and remained on the field for several minutes. But the junior quarterback didn't miss any plays and returned to the game.
Both teams will wait to hear where they're headed to play in bowl games on Sunday.
