40 Foot Sinkhole in Tenn. Stadium Endzone

A 40 foot by 40 foot sinkhole at Austin Peay State University Governor's Stadium in Tennessee

A large 40 foot wide by 40 foot deep sinkhole opened up just outside the endzone of Austin Peay State University’s Governors Stadium in Tennessee. The stadium is currently undergoing upgrades for next year’s football season.

Representatives from the University and the contractor expect the sinkhole will be filled without any problems.
