The Golden Ea­gles were up­set at home by UL-Mon­roe last week, 21-20, and are 3-0 SUATS in road openers the last three sea­sons. Jack Abra­ham threw for 378 yards and two touch­downs and drove his team into Warhawk ter­ri­tory in­side the fi­nal two min­utes, but a late in­ter­cep­tion pre­served the win for ULM. An­other ma­jor prob­lem for Smissy is they are just 2-12 ATS in non-con­fer­ence clashes when com­ing off a SU fa­vorite loss, in­clud­ing the last six. Mean­while, the Moun­taineers bounced back strong af­ter that heart­break­ing OT loss at Penn State in the opener as QB Zac Thomas was a per­fect 14-for-14 pass­ing in a 45-9 win at Char­lotte. With only Gard­ner-Webb on deck, ex­pect an­other fully fo­cused ef­fort here for App State in their home opener. An 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS record as fa­vorites against .500 or greater foes con­firms that no­tion, so get the Poulan out… we’re chop­ping wood!
