Austin Peay State University in Nashville has a tiny bit of a problem. A massive sinkhole seems to have opened up on their football field.

The 40-foot sinkhole started opening up Monday afternoon. Luckily no one was injured and they are confident the sinkhole will not affect the structure of the stadium.

APSU spokesman Bill Persinger told WSMV that underground rain is the cause. He said, “We have a limestone base underneath us, and limestone is porous and disintegrates from rain over centuries. So it creates a lot of sinkholes, and that’s basically what we’re experiencing here today.”

Regardless of the cause, there seems to be an increase in random sinkholes recently, which no doubt is the sign of the impending apocalypse.
