Application state played South georgia 36 times since 1932 and have faced the Eagles in every year since joining the Mountaineers in the Southern Conference in 1993, but this is the first time their clash has been scheduled in advance for the last Saturday of the regular season. Last year’s game was moved from mid-October to December 12 due to COVID protocols, and Application state won 34-26 with big plays in the fourth quarter coming from Virgil (100 yard kickoff return) and Nate Christmas (70 yard TD run).
