The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - College Football - As­so­ci­ated Press

Quar­taer­back Thomas passed for 247 yards and two touch­downs and Dar­ryn­ton Evans added two TD runs to pro­pel Ap­palachian State to a 38-7 vic­tory over Texas State on Satur­day.

The Moun­taineers ( 7-2, 5-1 Sun Belt Con­fer­ence) raced to a 7-0 lead on their first pos­ses­sion when Thomas con­nected with Dominique Heath from the 8-yard line. The score was set up when Austin Ex­ford re­cov­ered a Wil­lie Jones III fum­ble at the Ap­palachian State 33 on the Bob­cats' first se­ries.

The Moun­taineers added two sec­ond-quar­ter touch­downs – Thomas' 1-yard pass to Collin Reed and a 1-yard plunge by Evans – to grab a 21-0 lead at half­time.

Ap­palachian State used just two plays – capped by Evans' 79-yard touch­down run – on their first pos­ses­sion of the third quar­ter to push the lead to 28-0.
