Appalachian State enters its R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl matchup against Middle Tennessee without a permanent head coach. Having just recently lost Scott Satterfield to Louisville, Mark Ivey will step in and coach the Mountaineers for now. Middle Tennessee is playing in a school-record fourth straight bowl game and fifth in the last six years. They will be looking to bounce back, after blowing the Conference USA Title in a 27-25 nail-biter against UAB in early December.
