APSU’s football schedule has been released, and the Govs can look forward to whom they will be facing in 2015 coming off from a 1-11 overall record and 1-7 record in the Ohio Valley Conference last year.
Many fans want to see how new transfers and freshmen from this past recruiting class will perform.
The Governors will open the season at home against the Mercer Bears, who beat APSU last year at Mercer 49-21. APSU will be looking for revenge, as the Bears will be in Gov territory.
The next three games will be away against the University of Southern Mississippi, Vanderbilt University and Eastern Kentucky University. EKU will be APSU’s first game in the OVC this season.
The Govs’ first OVC opponent at home is Eastern Illinois University, followed by a road matchup against Murray State University. The Governors’ only win last year came against Murray State, a 20-13 victory that ended a 0-18 streak for the Govs.
The Govs’ next two games will be against the University of Tennessee at Martin and Jacksonville State University. JSU will be APSU’s homecoming game on Oct. 24. APSU will travel down to Nashville, Tenn., to face Tennessee State University.
The last home game of the year will be against Southeast Missouri State University. The final game of the 2015 season will be in Cookeville, Tenn., as the Govs take on Tennessee Tech University.
The Governors will be looking for fans to support them on the road and at home as they play their second season in the new Governors Stadium.
