Maine Vs. Appalachian State Final Score: Black Bears Knock Out Appalachian State, 34-12

Most of your knowledge of Appalachian State is probably confined to "that team that beat Michigan at home back in 2007." But they do play games every year! And, sadly for the Mountaineers, they don't win all of them.

In fact, Appalachian State was drummed out of the FCS playoffs Saturday by Maine, which generated 466 total yards in the 34-12 beatdown. Black Bears quarterback Warren Smith was 17-of-26 for 250 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the win, while Pushaun Brown had 111 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown run, on 24 carries.

While Jamal Jackson was 26-of-45 for 272 yards and one touchdown for Appalachian State, he also threw two interceptions. And the run game was literally almost nonexistent for the Mountaineers; Appy State rushed for three yards on 25 carries, and its biggest rushing play of the day went for eight yards.

Maine will play at Georgia Southern next week in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs.
