MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Cody Sandlin kicks a 43-yard field goal with four seconds left to give Tennessee-Martin a 20-17 win over Memphis in the season opener for both teams.
It looked like the game -- which was delayed several hours by bad weather -- was headed to overtime when Memphis' Keiwone Malone fumbled a punt. The Skyhawks recovered the miscue at the Tigers' 27-yard line with 17 seconds to play. Then Sandlin connected on the game-winner to ruin Justin Fuente's coaching debut with the Tigers.
