WATCH: 2020 college football season kicks off with Austin Peay’s 75-yard touchdown in Game 1 of the game


We’ve waited a long time for the 2020 college football season to begin, and that wait included a lot of fear that it would start at all, but once it got started it didn’t take long for it to feel real. .

In fact, it didn’t even take more than one piece.

Running back Austin Peay CJ Evans Jr. took off for a 75-yard touchdown in the first scrimmage play of the 2020 season. I wouldn’t call myself superstitious, but there are much worse omen for the 2020 season as a whole. than a home visit during the first shot.

It’s definitely better than the news before kick-off. It was at this point that reports started to surface that Austin Peay was without players for the game due to positive COVID-19 tests. The school issued a statement on the reports but could not confirm anything without violating the privacy of the players.

“While we appreciate the interest in Austin Peay’s football team in the lead up to the launch of the Guardian Credit Union FCS Kickoff, we cannot comment on the health or well-being of an individual student-athlete. Austin Peay athletic director Gerald Harrison said. “As usual, we brought 70 student-athletes to today’s game and they are ready and looking forward to playing in the showcase tonight. ”

Harrison went on to say that the school had tested its players and staff 72 hours before the game as required by the NCAA and that “none of the people representing Austin Peay in Montgomery, Alabama have tested positive. for the virus ”.
