RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Jarod Neal threw three touchdowns passes - his last providing the game-winning score with 1:05 left - and Tennessee-Martin beat Eastern Kentucky 42-35 on Saturday.

Tennessee-Martin (5-3, 5-1 Ohio Valley) scored 25 fourth-quarter points to shock the Colonels, who were led by Bennie Coney’s five passing touchdowns. Coney tied his own school record, set earlier this year in a win against Tennessee Tech.

But Deantae Glover’s 41-yard pick-6 against Coney tied the score at 35 with 4:32 left in the game. It was Coney’s second pick of the day.

Neal later led a 7-play, 58-yard drive capped by a 24-yard toss to Rod Wright for the go-ahead score, giving the Skyhawks their first lead. Neal overcame four interceptions before leading the game-winning drive.

Neal finished 24 of 51 for 358 yards, while Coney was 22 of 39 for 354 yards for the Colonels (5-4, 4-2). It was just the Skyhawks’ third win in 26 contests.
