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.
Karam was 12 for 28 and threw for 157 yards and a touchdown for the Tigers. Memphis' Jerell Rhodes added 106 rushing yards on 24 carries.
UT-Martin quarterback Derek Carr passed for 211 yards and finished 19-for-38 with a touchdown.
