Back in the Top 25

App State running back Daetrich Harrington (4) celebrates scoring a touchdown against Charlotte with teammates Noah Hannon (60) and Zac Crosby (85). App State returned to the AP Top 25 with its 35-20 win over Charlotte on Sept. 12.

BOONE — After beginning the 2020 season unranked, Appalachian State’s football team cracked the Associated Press poll, which was released Sept. 13.

The Mountaineers are tied with Kentucky for 23rd in the poll with 238 points. Appalachian State beat Charlotte 35-20 Sept. 12 and jumped back into the Top 25.

The Mountaineers are no strangers to the poll. They finished the 2019 season ranked No. 19 in the AP poll.

App State is not the highest-ranking Sun Belt team. Louisiana, which upset then-No. 23 Iowa State 31-14 on Sept. 12, is ranked 19th. Marshall, App State’s opponent on Sept. 19, received two votes in the poll.

Clemson is No. 1, followed by Alabama and Oklahoma. Georgia and Florida round out the top five.
