September 29th, 2012 • 1:30pm
Charleston, IL • O’Brien Field (10,000)
Austin Peay State University GovernorsCharleston, IL – After the past 25 years with legendary Bob Spoo leading the program, a new face is in charge of the Eastern Illinois program that will face Austin Peay, 1:30pm, Saturday. Not only is Dino Babers the new coach but he also has brought along a different offensive style.

Historically, Eastern Illinois has had superb quarterbacks, like former Walter Payton Award recipient and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. But Babers brought an offense with him from Baylor that is reminiscent of the one run by 2011 Heisman Trophy recipient Robert Griffin III.
