This is my favorite part of the college football season. We’re halfway through the regular slate; we’re firmly dialed into the Thursday and Friday night games; and then — BAM! — we get some sweet Tuesday night Sun Belt action — with Wednesday MACtion beginning next week!
And, mercy, do we ever get a good game for this snoozy Tuesday: the Sun Belt’s two preseason favorites meet in Jonesboro, Arkansas as the Appalachian State Mountaineers face the Arkansas State Red Wolves.
The ‘Eers are the more battle-tested team, narrowly losing a road overtime in Happy Valley. But, the Red Wolves have the most firepower of anyone in the Fun Belt — so this could be a shootout.
Either way, it’ll be a lot of fun, so come watch some football with us:
App State -9.5 at aSu (o/u 60.5) — ESPN2 7:00 Central
(For degenerate gamblers, you could do a whole lot worse than the Mountaineers at -9.5. Hint. Hint.)
