Austin Peay to visit Virginia Tech next year

Clarksville, TN (Sports Network) - Austin Peay football has added a trip to Virginia Tech as its second game against a Bowl Subdivision opponent in 2012.

The Governors, from the Ohio Valley Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision, will visit Virginia Tech on Sept. 8 at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va.

The game will follow Austin Peay's previously scheduled season opener at Western Kentucky on Sept. 1.

"It is going to be fun game," Austin Peay coach Rick Christophel said. "Coach (Frank) Beamer and his staff do a great job. I have known Coach Beamer for a long time and I am good friends with (defensive coordinator) Bud Foster. We have gotten some of our defensive thoughts from them.

We are excited to get the opportunity to play up there in Blacksburg. It is just a great football environment."

Virginia Tech will be the Govs' first ACC opponent and third BCS foe in school history.

The Governors also have two FBS opponents scheduled for 2012 - Vanderbilt and Ohio. They also will play Vanderbilt in 2015.
