Last week, they traveled to Texas A&M, which was ranked No. 6 in the country, and caused a stunning upset (giving Michigan fans some horrific flashbacks of 2007).

Trailing 28-26 with two seconds to go, all the Appalachian State had was a Hail Mary from their own 47-yard line.

Troy had the ball four points higher with 25 seconds to go, but on the 4th and 1st of their own 11 they chose to turn back the clock and take a safety.
Troy’s free kick was from their own 20 and the Mountaineers returned to their own 47.
