Dominant ground game leads UT Martin past E. Kentucky 33-3

MARTIN, Tenn. -- Ladevin Fair rushed for 181 yards with two touchdowns, and passed for a third score on a trick play as Tennessee-Martin defeated Eastern Kentucky 33-3 on Saturday.

Fair led a rushing attack that racked up 364 yards and gained just shy of six yards per carry. Jaimiee Bowe added 92 yards on 20 carries, Troy Cook had 57 yards and Terrance Hollingsworth 37, scoring his first TD, from the 3, with just over a minute to play.

Eastern Kentucky was held to 58 yards rushing and didn't score after a field goal on its opening drive.

The Skyhawks (5-4, 4-1 Ohio Valley) remain a half-game behind Jacksonville State in the OVC.

Fair scored from the 8 to boost Tennessee-Martin into a 7-3 lead, then pulled up after taking a handoff and hit a streaking CJ McElrath for a 33-yard score, and James Gilleylen returned an interception to cap a 21-0 run before halftime.
