MARTIN, Tenn. -- Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 477 yards and six touchdowns as Eastern Illinois dominated University of Tennessee at Martin 70-22 Saturday.

Garoppolo threw for three touchdowns in the first quarter and had four touchdown tosses by halftime. He threw seven touchdown passes in a game against Illinois State earlier this season.
