Celebrating 150 Years of College Football - Day 80 - Appalachian State Mountaineers

The Sports Aesthetics: A Uni Watch Fans Page will be posting a minimum of 1 NCAA Football Team (Division I) a day to celebrate the 150 years of College Football. The teams will begin with the oldest team in their respective conference (Big Ten = Oldest Conference) until all the teams are listed. The team helmets will go back to the early 1960’s and their current logo will be used.
The Appalachian State Mountaineers football team is the college football team at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. The Mountaineers have competed in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and the Sun Belt Conference since 2014. Appalachian plays its home games in Kidd Brewer Stadium, named after former head coach Kidd Brewer, whose 1937 squad was unbeaten and unscored upon during the regular season.
The Mountaineers competed in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) from its founding in 1978 to 2013. They won three straight national championships from 2005 to 2007, the first FCS team to do so since the playoffs began in 1978. They were also the first Division I program to win three consecutive national championships since Army accomplished the feat from 1944 to 1946, and the first Division I school in the modern era to claim three straight undisputed national titles. Appalachian became the first FCS team to receive votes in the final Associated Press (AP) college football poll on January 8, 2008. The Mountaineers received five points in the poll.
Through its history, the App State football program has won over 550 games, claimed three national championships and appeared in the Division-I FCS playoffs 20 times. The Mountaineers have 19 conference championships and have one of the nation's best home field advantages. The program also has one Walter Payton Award winner, Armanti Edwards, who was the first player to win the award in back-to-back years (2008, 2009).
On October 21, 2018, the Mountaineers became ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll, ranking at number 25. This was the team's first time being nationally ranked.

All-Time Record: 576-326-28 (.634)
