Appalachian St. 49, The Citadel 42

In the highest-scoring game in series history, Appalachian State

ran all over The Citadel to build a 49-14 lead, then held on for a

49-42 victory Saturday in the Southern Conference.

The Mountaineers (4-2, 2-1), who set season highs in rushing

(318 yards) and total offense (552), scored on seven of their first

eight possessions. Quarterback Jamal Jackson, making his first

start in place of the injured DeAndre Presley, completed his first

15 passes and finished 21-for-27 for 234 yards and three

touchdowns.

A 28-yard scoring pass to Brian Quick was the 25th touchdown

catch of Quick’s career, tying the school record.

With Tavaris Cadet rushing for 133 yards and a touchdown,

Appalachian State’s eighth straight win over The Citadel seemed

secure. But the Bulldogs (2-4, 1-4) rallied for 28 unanswered

points with the aid of two Appalachian State fumbles and Domonic

Jones’ 7-yard scoring return with a blocked punt.
