In his final, game at Kidd-Brewer Stadium, Taylor Lamb went out with a bang. The Calhoun, GA native completed 17 out of 22 pass attempts for 242 yards and four touchdowns. He also added 87 yards and a touchdown on five rush attempts. Over Lamb’s four seasons as App State’s starting QB, the Mountaineers are 19-5 at home.

On the ground, aside from Lamb, freshman Daetrich Harrington and junior Jalen Moore were unstoppable. Each carried the ball seventeen times apiece, Harrington racked up 118 yards and touchdown and Moore totaled 110 yards and two touchdowns. 

“When I think back to five years ago, we were 4-8,” App Head Coach Scott Satterfield said. “And then four years ago, we step into this conference and started out 1-5. But since that point, it has been a great journey.
