Governors try to clinch OVC title, automatic bid to FCS playoffs
The Governors host Easter Illinois (1-10) at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Fortera Stadium with a ton at stake. If the Governors win, they’ll win the OVC title and automatically qualify for the University’s first-ever Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.
A Governors win and a Southeast Missouri win in the final week of the season means the Govs share the title but clinch the automatic berth thanks to their 28-24 win over the Redhawks. A Governors win and a Southeast Missouri loss means an outright OVC title for Austin Peay football – the first in 42 years.
