CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- — Brian Snead set an FCS record for yards in a quarter when he rushed for three long touchdowns to jumpstart Austin Peay to a 27-20 win on Sunday.
He had 204 yards on six carries in the first quarter. The previous record was 194 on eight carries by Nevada’s Otto Kelly in the third quarter against Idaho on Nov. 12, 1983.
Snead, a redshirt sophomore who came into the game with 69 yards on 16 carries and a career long of 19, finished with 227 yards on 23 carries.
Freshman CJ Evans, who scored on a 75-yard touchdown on his first collegiate touch last fall against Pittsburgh, had a 7-yard TD run for Austin Peay (1-4, 1-1 Ohio Valley Conference) in the third quarter that proved to be the difference. The Govs played three road games in the fall, losing all, before falling at Tennessee Tech 27-21 last weekend in their spring opener.
Tennessee State (0-1, 0-1) was playing its first game since 2019. The Tigers were the only team to beat Austin Peay during the regular season of 2019.
Isaiah Green and Deveon Bryant both threw a touchdown pass, and on Tennessee State's final possession Green converted a fourth-and-14 from his 10. Green added completions of 20 and 31 yards before a final pass from the Austin Peay 24 was knocked down short of the end zone.
