After a heart-rending loss to Tennessee State on a last-second play a year ago, the only possible way to exorcise those demons was to stand tall and fend off the Tigers in the exact same scenario this season.

And that’s exactly what Austin Peay State University football did Saturday night in Ohio Valley Conference play at Nissan Stadium, making a late score stand up in a 21-17 victory—Austin Peay’s first against Tennessee State since 2011.

Austin Peay State University Governors - APSUNashville, TN – On a day when the weather conspired to limit the passing game, Austin Peay State University and Tennessee State engaged in some trench warfare in the mud and the muck at Hale Stadium, Saturday. Despite the best defensive effort by the Governors in 2015, Austin Peay was vanquished by the hosts, 20-6.

For the Governors (0-9, 0-6 OVC), the loss represented their most recent best chance to snap the nation’s longest road losing streak (36 games) and earn their season’s first win. Tennessee State (4-4, 1-4 OVC) picks up its first conference victory in 2015.
