The Appalachian State Mountaineers are the better team and should be favored, but they're also sloppy on defense and have shown they're not the same team they were a season ago. The Texas State Bobcats obviously have their issues as well and their offense has been problematic, but they do play their best ball at home, and you would think they could find some success against this App State defense. This is a lot of points. I'll take a stab with Texas State.
