As far as “College GameDay” is concerned, the center of the college football world is located in Boone, North Carolina, for the third week schedule.
There, Appalachian State – newly from Anne 17-14 Incredible Surprise from No. 6 Texas A&M Conference opponent Troy will host a rare “GameDay” feature for Sun Belt teams. The Mountaineers were also front and center in a 63-61 loss for North Carolina in the first week that some featured. Really amazing numbers in attack.
For their efforts over the first two weeks, Appalachian State will host Rhys Davis, Kirk Herbstreet, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, Lee Corso & Co. outside of Kid Brewer Stadium this weekend.
The meeting of mountaineers and Trojans outperformed other Power 5 competitions, including No. 6 in Oklahoma, Nebraska; No. 12 BYU at No. 25 Oregon; No. 22 Pennsylvania in Auburn; and No. 13 Miami at No. 24 Texas A&M, among others.
Not bad for 2 out of 5 teams. In doing so, The Sporting News took a look at the third week of GameDay visit:
