BOONE, N.C. -- Nakevion Leslie's interception for a tie-breaking touchdown capped a 35-28 rally for Chattanooga against Appalachian State Saturday.

A 29-yard pass six minutes earlier from Jacob Huesman to Xavier Borishade had given Chattanooga its first lead of the game at 28-21. Huesman finished with over 100 yards in both passing and rushing and three total touchdowns.
Appalachian St. (2-7, 2-4) took an early lead with a Marcus Cox run for a TD. Cox finished with 158 yards rushing and three touchdowns.
The interception thrown by Bryant was the only turnover for Appalachian St. The Mountaineers got the ball back with 2:52 left on the clock, and drove down the field for 10 plays and 77 yards, ending the game with two incomplete passes.
