Sept. 25, 2010
EL PASO, Texas -- Dakota Warren nailed a game-winning field goal with no time left on the clock to lift UTEP to a 16-13 win over Memphis on Saturday night.
The field goal was Warren's third of the game, including a 50-yard boot to tie it at 13-13 with about five and a half minutes left.
The Tigers (1-3, 0-2 Conference USA) were up 10-3 at halftime, thanks in part to a TD pass from Ryan Williams to Jermaine McKenzie.
The Miners (3-1, 1-1) came back to tie it at 10-10 in the third quarter with a scoring run by Joe Banyard, but Memphis went up again early in the final period on a field goal by Paulo Henriques, his second.
After Warren tied it at 13-all, UTEP held Memphis to just four more plays.
The Miners got the ball at their own 4-yard line on the ensuing punt and proceeded to drive it 95 yards up field in the final 3:13 to set Warren up for the game winner.
