Saturday Sports Finals

November 9th, 2013 - By Steve James

UT Martin put up a good fight but fell to 6-4 in their season with a 21-6 loss against Memphis.

In 2012, UTM beat Memphis 20-17 from a lightning delay contest and Saturdays game was the long awaited rematch.

UTM held the lead for most of the first half with 2 field goals by Jackso Redditt, but Memphis scored a touchdown in the last minute making a halftime score of 7-6 with Memphis up. There was not another score until halfway through the final quarter when Brandon Hayes completed a 12 yard pass. Then Memphis put the nail in the coffin with an 8 yard rush by Sam Craft to make a final of 21-6.

Coach Jason Simpson says his team worked hard tonight but Memphis made fewer mistakes, so they came out with the win.

The Skyhawks will travel to the Roy Kidd Stadium in Richmond next Saturday to take on Eastern Kentucky.


The Volunteers fall to 4-6 with a loss against Auburn 55-23 sending Auburn to 9-1.

The Vols played strong the first half, allowing one touchdown by the Tigers and scoring a 39 and 42 yard field goal by Michael Palardy tying the game for the second quarter. In the second quarter Tennessee grabs two touchdowns but allow four touchdowns by Auburn making a 34-20 halftime score. In the second half Tennessee gets a field goal and Auburn grabs three more touchdowns for the 55-23 win. Nick Marshall rushed for 214 of Auburn’s 444 yards.

Tennessee now needs to win out just to make a bowl game this season. The Vols will take on Vanderbilt two Saturdays from now on November 23.
