Pregame/First Quarter, AU 13-7
Hey everyone. I have arrived. My girls are here for this one, so my daughter was mucho excited. She's certainly in the minority; this stadium is about 75% full.
AUBURN 13, UT-MARTIN 7: Byrum hits a 44-yard field goal. Pass from Burns to Rod Smith went for 32 yards and moved Auburn into field-goal range. (2:13)
AUBURN 10, UT-MARTIN 7: Wes Byrum hit a 48-yard field goal. Drive was set up by a UTM drive that lost 14 yards and forced them to punt from their end zone. Auburn began the drive at the UTM 40. (7:36)
AUBURN 7, UT-MARTIN 7: The Skyhawks recovered a fumble in the end zone for a score. Robert Dunn misjudged a punt and tried to field it about 5 yards deep in the end zone. I bounced off him and into the hands of a UT-Martin defender. That's all on Dunn. (12:03)
AUBURN 7, UT-MARTIN 0: Tristan Davis returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. He took this one up the middle. Broke through, veered right and took it to the house. He backpedaled the final five yards. (14:46)
