Troy got out to a slow start to the season but they have won nine straight games. In the last game against Southern Miss, Troy scored 35 points and they won by 17 points. Gunnar Watson had a strong game putting completing 21 of his 34 passes for 289 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.

Appalachian State vs Troy Prediction

App State is averaging 35.8 points and even against a good defensive team they are going to find success. This Troy defense is good, but I expect the Mountaineers offense is going to find plenty of success here. The Mountaineers might not do enough to win this game, but they are going to score enough to keep this game close. The Mountaineers will keep it within a field goal. Back Appalachian State against the spread.
