MARTIN, Tenn. (AP)—Derek Carr passed for 286 yards and a touchdown, leading Tennessee-Martin to a 37-0 win over Tennessee State on Saturday night.
Jason McNair rushed for 125 yards and two touchdowns for the Skyhawks (6-5, 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference), who won for the fourth time in their past five meetings with the Tigers (3-7, 0-6).
Carr, who leads the conference in passing yards with 2,543, completed 13 of 24 passes. He threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Shriver and also scored on a 1-yard run.
The Skyhawks had 517 yards total offense to 123 for the Tigers, who committed three turnovers. Nate Rottero returned one of the Skyhawks’ two interceptions 28 yards for a touchdown.
The win gives the Skyhawks the Sergeant York Trophy, which goes to the winner of the series between the four Ohio Valley schools in Tennessee—Austin Peay, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech and Tennessee-Martin.
