UT Martin Skyhawks (7-4)


UT Martin tops Eastern Illinois, 34-31 to share OVC title

MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) Dresser Winn fired a 52-yard touchdown pass to Colton Dowell, then nosed in from the 2 on the conversion to push UT Martin to a 34-31 win over Eastern Illinois on Saturday, earning the Skyhawks a share of the Ohio Valley Conference title.

UT Martin (7-4, 5-0) share the conference regular-season championship with Southeast Missouri State, but the Redhawks claimed the conference's automatic berth in the FCS playoffs by winning a coin flip Saturday night. UT Martin will need an at-large berth when the FCS field is announced Sunday to extend its season.

The addition of Lindenwood to the OVC meant teams played one fewer conference game. SEMO and UT Martin did not play each other, setting up the coin flip.
