Mountaineers ranked second in TSN Poll PDF Print
Written by Mike Kelly

Appalachian State moved up a notch in the national polls after the Mountaineers clobbered Wofford College 43-13 on Saturday to win their sixth consecutive Southern Conference championship.

 

That effort also tied the league mark of six in a row originally set by Georgia Southern from 1997-2002. The Mountaineers (9-1 overall; 7-1 SoCon) are currently ranked No.2 in The Sports Network Poll. And the Moutaineers, who were ranked third last week, also received 28 first-place votes. Delaware takes over the top spot after last week's No.1 team, William & Mary, lost to New Hamsphire on Saturday. The Blue Hens received 116 first-place votes.
Eastern Washington (eight first-place votes), Jacksonville State (two first-place votes) and Stephen F. Austin round-out the top five. Williams & Mary is ranked sixth; Wofford, despite that lospsided loss to ASU on Saturday, remains in the top ten. The Terriers are ranked ninth.
The Moutaineers close out the regular season at Florida on Saturday. Our coverage begins at 10:30 am on AM 1450, WATA.
