Former UL Coach Mark Hudspeth Advances To FCS Quarterfinals
Congratulations are once again in order for a former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun head football coach.
Austin Peay head coach Mark Hudspeth led his team to a 42-28 win over Sacramento St. on Saturday, in the second round of the 2019 FCS Playoffs.
For the Governors, it was their second-ever FCS playoff win, following their opening round win over Furman, and their 110th victory of the season, the most in school history.
Hudspeth helped guide the Governors to a 9-3 regular-season record in his first season at the school during the regular season, capturing an Ohio Valley Conference title in the process, the first for the program since 1977.
Austin Peay will take on Montana St. in the quarterfinal round of the FCS Playoffs on Friday evening in Bozeman, Montana.
Hudspeth was hired as the 26th coach in UL program history in December of 2010 and guided the Cajuns through the 2017 campaign.
The 51-year old Hudspeth, who was the head coach at North Alabama from 2002-2008, spent last season as an assistant at Mississippi St.
Hudspeth was named head coach at Austin Peay last December.
Congrats to Coach Hud, and the best of luck to the Governors!
