MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- There's a Tennessee connection to Sunday night’s Oscars. A documentary shot in Memphis won in the "Best Documentary Feature" category.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal says the inspirational football film “Undefeated” fairly accurately portrays the real-life experiences of Memphis businessman Bill Cortney as he leads the inner city Manassas High School football team to a winning season in 2009 and 10.
The film is also a hit with critics. It has an 83 percent favorable rating on the review site RottenTomatoes.com.
Quarterback Logan Kilgore completed his first 19 passes Saturday to set a school record and steer the Blue Raiders to a 38-14 road triumph at Florida Atlantic. A strong first quarter lifts Blue Raiders to a road win and MT crosses 450 offensive yards for fourth-straight game.
