CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Draylen Ellis threw for 325 yards and four scores to four different receivers and Austin Peay beat Chattanooga 30-20 in the season opener for both teams. Chattanooga entered as the preseason 18th-ranked team in the FCS and Austin Peay No. 20. Ellis found a diving Drae McCray in the back-right corner of the end zone as he rolled to his right on first-and-goal from the Mocs’ 8-yard line for the go-ahead score with 40 seconds left in the third quarter. The score made it 23-20 and the Governors led the rest of the way. Drayton Arnold threw for 130 yards and a touchdown for the Mocs.
