Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) football team will make a first-ever appearance at Bryant-Denny Stadium when it faces Alabama in a November 19th, 2022 contest, the athletics department announced Thursday.
The Govs trip to Tuscaloosa, Alabama is the latest in a string of future opponents announced by the Austin Peay State University athletics department.
The tilt against Alabama joins Austin Peay State University’s 2022 season-opening trip to Western Kentucky, giving the football program a pair of nonconference tests against the NCAA Division I FBS level.
“This trip to Tuscaloosa and Bryant-Denny Stadium will provide our student athletes another great opportunity to display their talents and the Austin Peay spirit on the national stage,” said Austin Peay Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison. “Obviously games such as this are necessary to assist our department as we work hard to provide a premium student athlete experience for all of our sports.
“Scheduling these games takes much coordination and we would like to thank all those involved for assisting us as we took the necessary steps to make this opportunity possible.”
With Wednesday’s announcement, APSU currently has two Southeastern Conference foes on its upcoming schedules. A September 11th, 2021 contest at Ole Miss precedes the Govs trip to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
