September 14th, 2013 | 5:00pm CDT
Chattanooga, TN – It is remarkable that two schools, separated by some 175 miles, have played football just four times in their respective histories and not since the 1968 season.
But such is the case when Austin Peay and Chattanooga meet for the first time in 45 years, 5:00pm (CT), Saturday, at Finley Stadium. The Mocs own a 4-0 series lead, with this being the first meeting in the Scenic City since 1967.

After being held to a field goal in the first quarter, Vanderbilt (1-1) would finally get into the end zone on its fourth drive of the night, going 76 yards on nine plays, with Brian Kimbrow plowing in from six yards out for the TD, with 12:50 left before intermission.

Junior wide receiver Darryl Clack seems shy at first glance. The soft-spoken Nashville native never seems to raise his voice. He glides onto the field with grace, but not fanfare. He remains as inconspicuous as a man of his stature and skills can be, especially someone who commands such attention from opposing defensive backs.
Knoxville, TN – The curtain will rise on the Kirby Cannon Era, 5:00pm, Saturday, when Austin Peay State University plays Tennessee for the first time in program history.
