Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University football team hopes to end the season on a high note when it hosts Tennessee Tech in an 11:00am, Saturday contest at Governors Stadium.
The Govs won their last home game – a 56-0 spanking of Culver-Stockton – and look to make it two in a row in Clarksville. Saturday also represents Austin Peay’s last chance to earn an Ohio Valley Conference victory in 2012.

Austin Peay vs. Eastern Illinois
September 29th, 2012 • 1:30pm
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.

Clarksville, TN – Death, taxes, political flip flops are sure things….so is a close football contest between Austin Peay State University and Tennessee State University, at least since the Governors rejoined the Ohio Valley Conference in 2007.

Kickoff will occur 12:34pm, CDT from Lane Stadium, considered one of most difficult places in the country to play for visiting teams.

Clarksville, TN – The smallest man in Austin Peay’s secondary is also the most respected player on the Governors defense.
Little has come easy for senior safety Antwaun Majors, a 5-9, 170-pound fifth-year senior. Despite twice earning Region Defensive Player of the Year Award and the prestigious Nick Coutras Award while at Mt. Juliet High School, he came to Austin Peay as a walk-on.

Clarksville, TN – Stephen Stansell sits on the precipice of breaking almost all Austin Peay’s kicking records.
For instance, he just needs three field goals made to pass Tom McMillan as APSU’s all-time leader in that category.
But even Stansell would have to admit 2011 was an aberration in his superb APSU kicking career. He connected on just 10 of 19 field-goal attempts, missing three of his first four and then missed his last two.

Clarksville, TN – Wesley Kitts made an early statement and Reco Williams later delivered a punctuation mark in Austin Peay State University’s first scrimmage, a rain-delayed event Monday that was moved to late afternoon because of thunderstorms.
The day saw the offense gain the upper hand on the defense, thanks to a strong running game along with sharp passing from senior quarterback Jake Ryan.
