APSU Sports: Men’s Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – The veins in his neck bulged. The anger in his voice was evident.

“One of the things that concerns me is we have to be able to stop the run,” he said. “There are going to be big plays in the passing game when we don’t have a pass rush, but we can’t allow them 20-or-more yard runs. That is not good.
