Up 10-0 after the first quarter, Presley followed up a 48-yard touchdown pass to Brian Quick with a 2-yard rushing score to help Appalachian State (2-1) take a 27-0 halftime lead.

The Mountaineers had a 34-0 advantage with 5:53 left to play in the third quarter after Steven Miller's 3-yard scoring run.
