App State football is set to begin Sun Belt Conference play with a night game against ULM. Despite their 2-2 record, coach Shawn Clark is confident in his team’s abilities and believes they are just a few plays away from a perfect record. The Mountaineers have historically done well in conference openers and are looking to extend their winning streak. ULM has shown potential on offense, led by quarterback Jiya Wright and Kansas State transfer Tyrone Howell. App State’s defense has been strong, allowing an average of 19.8 points per game. Offensively, running back Nate Noel continues to lead the team with another 100-yard rushing game. The Mountaineers will face a tough challenge on the road, but they are ready to compete.
