Sports Illustrated hits news stands today- and the
Appalachian State University Mountaineers are on the cover.
Murphy joins other sports experts in calling the Saturday game “one of the
biggest upsets in the history of the game [of football].”
The 34-32 victory over 5th-ranked Michigan is all
some Boone residents can talk about. According to Murphy, it’s worth the hype.
No I-AA team has ever beaten a ranked I-A squad, “let alone a Top 5 team and
the winningest program in the history of the game,” he writes. “Someone put
wasabi in Michigan’s cupcake,” his article says.
According to Murphy- there’s only one university as excited
about the Mountaineers as ASU, and that’s Ohio State. Longtime Michigan rival,
Ohio State is reveling in the loss, Murphy says.
