Appalachian St beats Gamecocks 20-15 for 2nd Power Five win

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Appalachian State just keeps adding to its rich, college football history.

The small school champions that took down mighty Michigan in the Big House 12 years ago has now beaten two Power Five programs - and its first Southeastern Conference opponent - after a 20-15 victory at South Carolina on Saturday night.

"Yeah, definitely means a lot," said Zac Thomas, the Mountaineers junior quarterback.
