The series opens for Austin Peay (3-13) with a noon, doubleheader, Saturday, at University Field, and concluding with a noon single game, Sunday, against the Lady Eagles (6-11).The Lady Govs haven’t played since last Sunday at the rain-shortened Georgia Tech Buzz Classic, where they finished with a 1-2 record.
