Austin Peay State University LogoAustin Peay State University snapped a 22-game losing streak to Eastern Kentucky, Saturday night, as it rallied in the second half to defeat the No. 20 Colonels, 24-20, at Governors Stadium, in Ohio Valley Conference action.

The victory ended the nation’s third longest losing streak to a single opponent. APSU last defeated the Colonels, Oct. 1, 1977 when Randy Christophel, the brother of current APSU coach Rick Christophel, was the quarterback. It included back-to-back losses to the Colonels after the Govs returned to the OVC in 2007. It also snapped a 17-game Govs losing streak to the Colonels in Governors Stadium.
The Governors got 176 rushing yards from Terrence Holt, including an 80 yarder and a go-ahead 12-yard third quarter score to snare the victory. APSU defense, which had forced just seven turnovers all season long, recovered three fumbles and grabbed one interception in the game—that interception by Zac Burkhart came with 1:19 left in the game at the APSU 41 yard line.

From there Austin Peay ran out the clock as the Govs won their second straight to improve to 3-4 overall, 2-2 in the OVC while the No. 20 Colonels slip to 4-3 overall, 4-2 in the OVC. «Read the rest of this article»
