Clarksville, TN – It’s a long way from Carnegie, PA, to Tucson, AZ, in more ways than one. Raised by his grandparents, Ed Bunio needed an athletic scholarship if he wanted to attend college. After his outstanding prep career, Michigan came offering so did Miami…but Bunio chose Arizona.
Some 2,100 miles from home, Bunio literally went from a small town of barely 5,000 people to a campus of 15,000. Bunio loved the campus, the city and all the extracurricular activities that were available. In fact this new world was eye opening, except during the daytime…during class time.

Clarksville, TN – Since rejoining the Ohio Valley Conference the Governors own a 2-1 record against Southeast Missouri.

Two seasons ago the Redhawks rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to defeat the Governors, 33-30, in Governors Stadium, in the season finale.
Austin Peay enters the contest on a two-game losing streak. The Govs have endured no worse than a three-game losing streak in five of the last six seasons.

The Govs, Football Championship Subdivision members of the Ohio Valley Conference, lost to Middle Tennessee, 56-33, September 11th. However, it will be the first time in school history the Govs will play a Bowl Championship Series (BCS) opponent.
