Marshall takes on Appalachian State during an NCAA football game on Thursday, Sept. 23 at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, N.C.

BOONE, N.C. — When Marshall and Appalachian State walked off the field from the Mountaineers’ 31-30 win over the Thundering Herd on Thursday, everyone — Marshall fans included — likely would have been talking about what a great game it was.

Excitement was aplenty with play going down to the wire and the Herd falling by the slimmest of margins after the Mountaineers rallied back on a nationally-televised prime-time game.
