Appalachian State Mountaineers vs. Toledo Rockets Prediction

Defense usually trumps offense and Appalachian State will aim and endeavor to reinforce that notion in this bowl game. As mentioned, the Mountaineers are committed to playing football at a superior level and alas they have always been eager to schedule tough opponents in out-of-conference contests. In the 2016, the Mountaineers set dates with two Power Five opponents, while Toledo’s most formidable tests were against BYU and Arkansas State. The Mountaineers will look at Toledo as another day at the office and given the fact this team nearly defeated Tennessee in Knoxville on opening night, you know this outfit is looking to end their successful campaign with an exclamation point. A year ago, the Mountaineers were in this bowl game against Ohio and they went forth and emerged victorious on the heels of a thrilling comeback. While we get a premium team at a quality price we will go ahead and call for App State in outright in a defense-oriented affair dictated to their liking, which will likely favor a Under wager.
