After Darian Stone's 41-yard touchdown pass to Eric Belew pushed the Golden Eagles (2-6. -0-5) ahead 14-12 at halftime, Godfrey kicked a 22-yarder in the third.

Stone, who was 5 of 13 passing for 77 yards, threw a 6-yard TD pass to Cody Matthews for a 21-15 Tennessee Tech lead early in the fourth.

With second & goal and 1 second left, German found Leonard in the back of the end zone.

Tennessee State's Trabis Ward added 129 yards rushing.
