Ole Miss vs Austin Peay 2021 Live: Time, TV schedule and online streaming, Folks, this is a game you should have every reason to sit back and enjoy. Pop open a crispy boy, kick up your feet, and let the points upon points wash over you. If you’re in the Vaught like you should be or at least opine to be, go ahead and grab those BBQ nachos, get that third round of $10 beers, and realize we’re back in our happy place, our sanctuary for football every fall, after nearly 10 months off — some of us nearly two years.
Austin Peay is in the FCS Top-25, and they won its first game against No. 18 UT-Chattanooga last week, 30-20. None of that matters. Meanwhile, Ole Miss turned the game against the Louisville Cardinals into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 569 yards to 355. Ole Miss took down U of L 43-24 last Monday. The win came about even with Ole Miss handicapping themselves with 120 penalty yards. QB Matt Corral had a stellar game for Ole Miss as he passed for one TD and 381 yards on 32 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 55 yards.
The Governors do run an up tempo offense predicated on getting in as many plays as possible, not unlike the Ole Miss offense. In its first game, APU managed to get off 73 plays to a meager 58 for UTC. The Rebels also ran 73 plays in its 43-24 win over Louisville on Monday — this is going to be a game with a lot of points, a lot of offense, and it’s not time to panic if the Guv’s get a couple scores.
Maybe it’s just me living the dad life in Mississippi, but when I see the Austin Peay mascot, all I think of is that dang Mayor Humdinger from Paw Patrol.Ole Miss fans, we don’t have much room to criticize how a mascot looks, but APU needs a revamp before my kids come out the stands ready to stomp a mudhole in the jerk who is always giving Ryder and the gang trouble. The Austin Peay Governors are staying on the road Saturday to face off against the Ole Miss Rebels at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 11 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at Hollingsworth Field.
Ole Miss absolutely needs to start fast, pile up points before the half, and get an insurmountable lead going into the second half. From there, a steady dose of Snoop Conner out of the backfield against a tired defense should help seal the deal for the Rebels today. Special teams collected 13 points for the Rebels. K Caden Costa delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game. Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Governors and Ole Miss clash.
