Appalachian State 54, Savannah State 7

BOONE, N.C. - Senior quarterback Taylor Lamb tied Appalachian State's single-game record by throwing five touchdown passes in a 54-7 victory against Savannah State. He played only two quarters, completing 12 of his 15 passes for 327 yards as the Mountaineers (1-1) took a 45-0 lead into halftime of the gold-themed game in Kidd Brewer Stadium.

Lamb connected twice with tight end Collin Reed and once apiece with tight end Levi Duffield, receiver Zy Letman and receiver Jalen Virgil. Scoring receptions by Duffield (57 yards), Reed (68 yards) and Virgil (56 yards) eclipsed 50 yards.

Junior running back Jalin Moore opened the scoring with a 2-yard touchdown run, part of a nine-carry appearance that ended with 57 rushing yards, and Michael Rubino's 38-yard field goal came before App State's sixth touchdown of the half against the FCS-level Tigers (0-1). Thanks to a 50-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, senior Terrence Upshaw led the Mountaineers with 86 yards on 10 carries.

Duffield's 57-yard touchdown seven minutes into the game was the longest catch by an App State tight end since Ben Jorden had a 58-yard reception against Presbyterian in 2008, but Reed topped both of those gains on his 68-yard touchdown with 12:30 left in the second quarter.

About nine minutes after Virgil caught a short pass, cut across the field and outran Savannah State's defense to score his first career touchdown for the Mountaineers, Reed reached the end zone on a 16-yard reception that allowed him to finish with three catches for 106 yards.

App State's big passing performance occurred a week after Lamb completed 18 of 27 passes for 128 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions against Georgia.

A safety enabled the Mountaineers to take a 47-0 advantage into the fourth quarter, and Savannah State ended the shutout bid when Stephen Dorsey scored on a 45-yard fumble return with 11:55 left.

App State limited Savannah State's offense to six first downs and 114 total yards on 51 plays. Eric Boggs' six tackles led a defense that recorded three sacks, including the first in the careers of sophomore Caleb Spurlin and true freshman Demetrius Taylor. Josh Houser and Cameron Pack combined on a sack late in the game.
