Appalachian State earns first-ever Top 25 ranking

BOONE, NC (WBTV) - Appalachian State has made history again during its record-setting start in FBS football.

At 5-1 overall and 3-0 in the Sun Belt Conference, the Mountaineers earned their first Top 25 ranking as an FBS member when the newly released AP Poll on Sunday listed App State at No. 25. It’s tied for the highest ranking ever for a Sun Belt team, as Troy’s one-week appearance at No. 25 in the AP Poll during the 2016 season is the only other case of a Sun Belt team being ranked in either poll.

With a school-record 78 voting points in this week’s Amway Coaches Poll, the Mountaineers are one spot outside the 25th spot, 17 voting points behind Miami.
