Underdog Dynasty looks at the Middle of Appalachian State's 2017 schedule and predicts a 31-14
Mountaineers victory.

Appalachian State had its Media Day yesterday.

The Mountaineers want to go 13-0 in 2017.

Appalachian State is the consensus preseason Sun Belt Champion. In 2016 they were 10th nationally in rushing average (250.9 yards/game). They were also good at defense, ending 9th nationally in scoring defense (17.8 points/game). The Mountaineers return six starters on offense including Jalin Moore, the Sun Belt Offensive player-of-the-Year. Look for Appalachian State to run the rock again in 2017
