This is the first game of the season for the Tennessee State Tigers and the hope is this can be a bounce back year after the team really struggled during the 2019 season. Tennessee State finished the 2019 season with a 3-9 record overall including only going 2-6 during conference play. This is a Tennessee State team that is filled with all kinds of question marks, Tennessee State has a talented offensive line, but outside of that, there are a lot of question marks about the offense. On defense, Tennessee State returns seven starters and they are going to need the defense to be strong in this game. With so many questions surrounding the offense the defense needs to need to be leaned upon.
On the other side of this matchup is the Austin Peay Governors who played three games during the fall season, and one game so far during the spring season.

In this game for Austin Peay they need a full four quarters from the defense, they can’t take their foot off the gas in the 4th quarter.
