UT-Martin routs Austin Peay 37-7 in OVC play

MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) Abou Toure and Dylan Favre combined for four touchdowns and over 300 yards as UT-Martin scored 37-straight points to beat Austin Peay 37-7 on Saturday.

Toure's touchdown with 8:47 left in the first quarter sparked the scoring spree that would extend into the fourth quarter. At the half, the Skyhawks led 23-0 after Favre completed a 19-yard pass to William Tanner.

Favre completed 11 of 17 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. Toure added 114 yards and two touchdowns on the ground for the Skyhawks (4-5, 3-3 Ohio Valley).

UT-Martin nearly tripled Austin Peay's total yards, 496-170.

Darrien Boone threw a 43-yard pass to Wesley Thomas with 12:52 left in the fourth to avoid the shutout. Boone threw for 56 yards after completing 3-of-8 passes for Austin Peay (1-7, 1-3), which snapped a six-game losing streak with a win over Murray State last Saturday.
