BOONE, N.C. — It's a big week for Appalachian State University.
ESPN's College GameDay is coming to App State as they play against Troy Saturday.
The pregame show will be at Sanford Mall on campus, before App State's Sun Belt Conference opener.
"This is what we've been working for since we made the transition to FBS," App State Director of Athletics Doug Gillin said. "This is a special opportunity to showcase our university, community, and football program to a national audience."
This all comes after the Mountaineers upset no. 6 Texas A&M on the road.
It’s the first time App State beat a top 10 team in 15 years.
A big deal. However, the team is not thinking about that anymore because it’s all Troy now.
