ASU’s ‘Crowning Achievement’ About to Celebrate Five-Year Anniversary; Receiving National Media Attention
It was the day that college football changed forever. Sept. 1, 2007. When the clock hit 0:00, Appalachian State University had defeated No. 5 ranked Michigan 34-32. Now, as we close in on the five-year anniversary of what Head Coach Jerry Moore called the “crowning achievement,” the win is receiving national media attention again.
If you visit CBSSports.com’s college football section, you will see Dennis Dodd’s story on the upset as one of the featured stories of the day. Additionally, a story published yesterday by Jerry Hinnen for CBS Sports reads: “The choice for the biggest upset of the past five years of college football is an easy one: Appalachian State 34, Michigan 32 in the opening week of the 2007 season, the jaw-dropping, history-making upset whose five-year anniversary CBSSports.com’s college football coverage is celebrating this week.”
