Clarksville, TN – While athletic departments like the Austin Peay State University (APSU) continue to wait and see on what will happen next as far as seeing a light at the end of the tunnel with this coronavirus (COVID-19) virus and all of its delays and shutdowns, some of the present and future day problems it has caused are starting to come to light, with plenty of questions left to be answered.
Instant Peay Play: Terry Taylor’s senior year for APSU Basketball could be one for the books, literally
Clarksville, TN – While the sting of losing in the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Championship semifinals still lingers for Austin Peay State University (APSU), it isn’t too early to look forward to what could be a record book rewrite for Terry Taylor in his senior season.
Taylor, who is from Bowling Green, KY, will head into his final season with the Govs already well ensconced into the Austin Peay State University record books, but also having a chance to put his name among the very best to have ever played for the red and white.
Clarksville, TN – If you thought March Madness was just on the basketball court this week, you are mistaken if you are a fan of Austin Peay State University (APSU) athletics, as the next seven days will be full of action both home and away for the Governors.
Now while there is no question the men’s and women’s Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Championships at the Ford Center in Evansville, IN, will headline this week’s action – and rightfully so – with possible bids to the NCAA tournament on the line, but there will be plenty more action for Govs fans to watch.
Clarksville, TN – With a week to go in the season and the Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s basketball team still in the hunt for a regular-season Ohio Valley Conference title, two of the league’s biggest awards in the sport should all but be wrapped up for a pair of Governors.
Junior forward Terry Taylor and freshman guard Jordyn Adams should be as close to a lock as there can be on receiving the OVC’s Player and Freshman of the Year Awards respectively.
Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) baseball team opens its 2020 regular season this week at Raymond C. Hand Park still among the favorites to win the Ohio Valley Conference title, but will have to find a away to do it with several new faces on the squad, especially on the mound.
The Govs finished 32-25 last season and made a deep run into the OVC postseason tournament, winning its first two games, but gone from that team are five of its top seven pitches as far as innings pitched goes – including Jacques Pucheu, Josh Rye and Brandon Vial, who combined to pitch over 216 innings last year and win 18 games.
Clarksville, TN – In its 83 years of play, since their first season on the gridiron back in 1930, the Austin Peay State University (APSU) football team has had several outstanding seasons they can look back on and argue that they had the best season in program history, but the 2019 incarnation may have lock up the title of best team in program history.
Prior to this season, three or four previous teams could argue they hold the mantle of the program’s best.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) will be celebrating it’s 88th homecoming this week, but more importantly its football team has a chance to take over first place in the Ohio Valley Conference standings, 3:00pm, Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at Fortera Stadium if it defeats current OVC leader UT Martin in what is arguably the biggest game the program has participated in over the past 40 years.

Clarksville, TN – Two Austin Peay State University (APSU) teams have a big week coming up, as the Governors volleyball and football teams open Ohio Valley Conference play this week.

Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) football team continues to be one of the best run-stopping defenses in the nation, as this past weekend in Macon, GA, the Governors held the Mercer Bears rushing attack to less than 50 yards from scrimmage.
In giving up just 43 net yards from scrimmage on the ground to Mercer, it marks the third straight week the Govs run defense has allowed their opponents less than 60 total rushing yards net in a contest, with APSU giving up 53 yards to North Carolina Central in the season opener on August 29th and 32 yards to Central Arkansas on September 7th.
