BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- Richie Williams scored two touchdowns, including the one that put Appalachian State ahead for good, to lead the Mountaineers to a 35-25 victory over Chattanooga on Saturday.

With the Mountaineers trailing 13-7, Williams scored on a 3-yard run with 1:20 left in the second quarter to put Appalachian State (6-2, 4-1 Southern Conference) up 14-13 at halftime. He scored again on an 11-yard run with 3:33 left in the third quarter to make the score 28-19.

Levonte Barber scored on 1-yard run with 14:57 left in the fourth quarter to pull the Mocs (5-4, 2-3) within 28-25. Barber also had scored in the third quarter on a 2-yard run.

But the Mountaineers' Kevin Richardson scored on a 3-yard run with 11:15 left in the fourth for the final score.

The Mocs went up 6-0 on two field goals on Esteban Lopez in the first quarter, then Appalachian State took a 7-6 in the second quarter on a 6-yard pass from Richie Williams to Daniel Bettis.

Chattanooga had its last lead of the game at 13-7 when Michael Gilmore scored on a 3-yard pass from Antonio Miller with 4:59 left in the second.

Chattanooga played without seven players who were suspended for what the chancellor described as curfew violations. The violations coincided with a pre-dawn Oct. 21 gang rape complaint by a female student.
