But Tennessee-Martin outscored Murray State 17-3 in the second quarter, highlighted by a rushing touchdown from DJ McNeil and a 21-yard touchdown pass from Neal to Jeremy Butler.
Neal scored a 1-yard rushing touchdown to give the Skyhawks the lead in the third quarter, and tossed two fourth-quarter touchdowns to help Tennessee-Martin pull away.
