CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Troy Cook tossed three short touchdown passes as UT Martin stopped in-state rival Chattanooga for just the second time in five meetings, posting a 21-7 victory Saturday.
The Skyhawks bounced back after a 45-23 loss to Ole Miss last week.
Cook found Caylon Weathers with a 3-yard touchdown pass with 4:54 left in the first quarter and tossed 2 yards to Jaylon Moore midway through the second. His 9-yard pass to Brett Thompson early in the second half gave UT Martin a 21-0 lead.
Ladarius Galloway, who carried 24 times for 188 yards against the Rebels, collected 79 yards on 21 carries against the Mocs, helping UT Martin control the clock. The Skyhawks maintained possession for 36:33.
Nick Tiano completed just 13 of his 27 pass attempts for 144 passing yards for Chattanooga. His 59-yard strike to Bingo Morton with 3:05 left averted a shutout.
