No. 13 Hokies blast ASU in Blacksburg

September 6, 2011

Appalachian State found out the hard way that this isn’t 2007 and that Lane Stadium isn’t the Big House in Michigan.

“It was just an awful afternoon,” said ASU coach Jerry Moore. “From the first series, a fumble on the second snap of the game. On their first play, they score. It was just an avalanche from there. It snowballed and just got worse and worse.”
