Furman dropped a 35-7 decision to undefeated Appalachian State Sunday to close the regular season with a 3-1 record.

Played on an icy field in Boone, N.C., the Furman team wasn’t able to find any playing rhythm and did a poor job of distributing clean ball to the Paladin backline. The wet, windy conditions favored the larger, pack-oriented Mountaineers.

With the loss, Furman finishes in second place in the Mountain Division. The squad’s play-off hopes hinges on the Coastal Carolina – College of Charleston game with weekend.

A win or close loss by Charleston would send Furman through to the play-offs.
