Austin Peay Knocks off Unbeaten Murray State 34-31

MURRAY(AP) – Grant Paulette kicked a 33-yard field goal with two seconds remaining as Austin Peay clipped previously undefeated and 14th-ranked Murray State 34-31.

Despite the loss, the Racers will square off next week with 12th-ranked Jacksonville State for the Ohio Valley Conference title and automatic berth to the FCS playoffs.

Austin Peay edged Jacksonville State 13-10 in its previous game, but Jacksonville State’s win at Eastern Illinois on Saturday dashed the Governors’ hopes of a repeat OVC championship.
