TSU To Host Austin Peay in Lone Hale Stadium Game
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee State football will play one game on campus at Hale Stadium during the 2013 season.

The Tigers will host in-state rival Austin Peay on Nov. 9. This is the second year in a row that TSU will play at Hale after a 13 year absence.

"Here at TSU, we have a very rich tradition," athletics director Teresa Phillips said. "Having games back at Hale last year was great for the fans, alumni and players. We look to continue the tradition and make more memories at Hale."

Tennessee State hosted Austin Peay for the first conference matchup in the OVC of the 2012 season and the first game held at Hale Stadium since 1998.

"The fact that it is Austin Peay is exciting," said Phillips. "We were very happy with the turn out last year in the Hole, especially against Austin Peay. Hopefully the fans come out again this year to see another great game."

TSU went 8-3 during the 2012 season, including a perfect 5-0 at home.
