This time, the Gover­nors had seven rush­ing touch­downs. Their four re­ceiv­ing touch­downs, in­clud­ing two to DeAn­gelo Wil­son, came in the first half. Jeremiah Oatsvall threw two touch­down passes and rushed for 117 yards and another score. Former McCal­lie stand­out Ja Vaughn Craig also threw for two scores for the team coached by Chat­tanooga na­tive Will Healy.

Austin Peay led 43-26 at half­time and 57-40 af­ter three quar­ters.

Aaron Turk had a 92-yard kick­off re­turn for a touch­down for More­head State.
