Appalachian State tops Louisiana-Lafayette 35-16
Appalachian State (6-5, 5-2 Sun Belt) raced out to a 14-3 first quarter lead on an 8-yard run by Cox and Bobo Beathard's 33-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Lafayette (7-4, 6-1) responded in the second with Elijah McGuire's 8-yard touchdown run and Hunter Stover's second field goal of the day, a 26-yard kick as time expired in the half, and the Ragin' Cajuns trailed by a point at intermission.
It was almost all Appalachian State after the break.
The Mountaineers scored twice in the fourth on Cox's 2-yard plunge and Terrance Upshaw's 36-yard jaunt.
