It is the third consecutive five-set match the two teams have played in the series, the Gamecocks winning all three.

Jacksonville State (8-7, 3-1 OVC) needed a 6-1 set-ending burst to win the opening set, 25-20. The set saw the teams trade the lead five times, but neither team could gain more than a three-point advantage until the final JSU burst. Austin Peay led by two points, 9-7, early and had an 18-17 lead late, but committed six errors (three attack, two reception and one setting) in the final run.
