Cookeville, TN – There will be no six-way tie for the Ohio Valley Conference championship.
Tennessee Tech made sure of it.
The Golden Eagles ripped Austin Peay, 49-7, on Saturday to claim a share of the OVC title and the conference's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. Tre Lamb rushed for three touchdowns to fuel the victory.
But the Golden Eagles beat both EKU and JSU in head-to-head meetings earlier this season, earning the automatic playoff bid.
Heading into Saturday's final day of OVC action, the possibility existed for a six-way tie for the conference title between Tennessee Tech, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Murray State, Tennessee State and UT Martin.
The FCS playoff pairings will be announced Sunday morning.
