Appalachian State routed Troy, 47-10, in Saturday in Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone.
Appalachian State scored on all six of its first half drives–four touchdowns and two field goals–enroute to a 24-point halftime cushion (24-10). The Mountaineers (7-2 over-all; 5-1 Sun Belt) then coasted in the second half.
But they will not win a fifth (two shares and back-to-back title game wins) consecutive Sun Belt Conference Championship this season. Number 16 Coastal Carolina (9-0, 7-0) locked up the East Division title by romping past Texas State, 49-14, to clinch a spot in the league championship game. As a result, for the first time since the conference introduced a championship game before the 2018 season, it will not be played in Boone.
