In App State’s second College GameDay appearance in consecutive years, the Mountaineers won 26-23 in overtime. Starting at 9 a.m., the weekly GameDay events featured the regular specialists as well as The Jonas Brothers and Bailey Zimmerman as musical special guests. The ensemble sang their new song “Strong Enough” and the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” to a record-breaking crowd of roughly 26,000 people. The game kicked off at 2 p.m. and ended almost 3 hours and 45 minutes later in which App State fans in James Madison’s stadium and in Boone excitedly celebrated the big win. This marks the team’s second ranked road win, with last year’s 17-14 win against No. 6 Texas A&M. After the upset win in 2022, students and fans from all over Boone stormed King Street and the Duck Pond at Trivette. Similar to last year’s road win, people dove into the pond and raided Boone’s main street. The Mountaineers head into their last regular season game with a 7-4 overall record.
