After Dom Crowder tied the game at seven on a three-yard run, Juan Jaramillo put the Tigers back up on the next possession finishing off a three-yard rush for a touchdown.
Aaron Greene then got into the act, first hitting Luke Adamiec for a 39-yard touchdown pass, then capping a drive in the fourth to put the Tigers up 27-7.
Crowder would get a second score late for the Raiders.
