The James Madison Dukes have had an extra week to prepare for this contest, so there's some value there, but they haven't played anybody up to this point, so the jury is still out on their full potential. The Appalachian State Mountaineers have an above average offense across the board, and their defensive numbers would be great as well if it weren't for that ridiculous opener against UNC. Appalachian State is the more proven and trustworthy team in this spot, and home field matters given the Mountaineers success over the years. I'll lay the touchdown.
