Appalachian State faces UL Monroe on Saturday, October 31st at Malone Stadium for week nine of NCAA football action. 

Appalachian State is coming off a commanding 45-17 win over Arkansas State in its last game on Thursday night, October 22nd. Appalachian State is now 3-1 overall this season and 1-0 in Sun-Belt conference play. Appalachian State has won two straight games after losing to Marshall on September 19th. Appalachian State scores 34.8 points per game and earns 483.0 total yards per contest as well. Quarterback Zach Thomas is 64-100 for 819 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions this season for App State. Appalachian State's defense has been solid to start the year, as App State only allows 18.8 points per game to the opposition and only concedes 332.8 total yards of offense. Appalachian State will be fighting with #20 ranked Coastal Carolina for first place in the Sun-Belt East. 

UL Monroe has been the worst team in the Sun-Belt this season with a record of 0-6 overall and 0-3 in conference play. UL Monroe is the only Sun-Belt team without a win this season, as the Warhawks have been abysmal to start the year. UL Monroe is coming off a 38-14 loss to South Alabama in week eight on the road, a game in which UL Monroe was down 17-0 in the first quarter. UL Monroe scores only 13.5 points per game and earns 306.8 total yards per game. UL Monroe's defense has also struggled, allowing 36.5 points per game to the opposition.

UL Monroe has allowed at least 30 points in each game this season, and I do not think things will change against such a tough Appalachian State offense. I expect Zach Thomas to thread the needle for most of this game, putting up a ton of points early on for App State in what should be a blowout win. The line tells you all you need to know, as Appalachian State is 31.5-point favorites in this one. I will take Appalachian State, even though I never prefer to lay this many points on the road. At the end of the day, UL Monroe has not done one thing right this season.
