Wow who would have thought this would happen today on game one in the big house. The two time national formally division 1AA Appalachian State Mountaineers would upset the number 5 in the nation Michigan Wolverines. I remember seeing Appalachian State play on TV last season on their way to their second national championship and I was very impressed with this team and with the performance of their freshman QB Armanti Edwards. Edwards now a sophmore didnt throw an incomplete pass as the teams went to the locker room with a 28-17 Appalachian State lead. Michigan fought back and took the lead late in the forth but Appalachian State never ever gave up and kicked a field goal to go ahead with 20 seconds. A huge pass to Manningham brought Michigan to a 37 yard field goal attempt that was blocked by Lynch and Appalachian State could celebrate as they upset the Wolverines at the big house 34-32. It has to be one of the biggest upsets in history. Congrats to Appalachian State on fighting and never giving up and winning a game against a very good Michigan team and winning at Michigan in one of the toughest places to play.
