App State falls to Louisiana for first time in 24-21 senior night loss

On a rainy, chilly senior night at Kidd Brewer Stadium, App State fell to No. 20 Louisiana-Lafayette 24-21 in a game that came down the wire.

“It was a great game, tough conditions out there, but (I’m) proud of our players,” head coach Shawn Clark said. “Wish we would have won on their senior day, they’re hurting in the locker room right now like we all are. But we’re going to bounce back and get ready for Georgia Southern.”

To start the game, App State elected to kick to Louisiana. On the first drive, the Mountaineers forced a punt and the snap sailed over Louisiana punter Rhys Burns’ head.
