CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Jamal Jackson threw three touchdown passes and Appalachian State scored 34 consecutive points to erase a 10-point deficit and defeat Chattanooga 34-17 Saturday night.
Turnovers put the Mountaineers (2-2, 1-1 Southern Conference) in a 10-0 first-quarter hole. Jackson was sacked by Davis Tull at his 8 and fumbled. Jacob Huesman found Marlon Anthony on a 7-yard scoring pass for the Mocs (1-3, 0-1) two plays later.
Chaz Moore intercepted Jackson on Appalachian State's next possession and returned it 42 yards to set up a field goal.
It was all Mountaineers after that. Jackson hit Steven Miller for a 35-yard score 32 seconds before halftime for a 10-10 tie.
The Mountaineers, who lost to The Citadel last week, haven't lost two straight conference games since 2002.
