The Tigers rally and perform their third shutout of the season against the College of the Desert Roadrunners on Nov. 9.

Quarterback Skylar Howard threw for four touchdowns and one interception on 41 attempts of which 28 were completed.

Howard is currently first in conference with 275.4 passing yards per game and first in total yards with 1,567 yards on the season.

He is also second in conference with 18 touchdowns.

On the ground game, Denzel Foster who only ran for 47 yards on 15 rushing attempts, tallied up a touchdown, which places Foster in the top five in conference in rushing touchdowns with six and number one in yards per game with 107.2.

The biggest play of the night came from Howard who connected a 31-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Kenny Torrence in the beginning of the fourth quarter.

Torrence recorded six catches for 85 yards with the 31-yard connection from Howard being his only touchdown of the night.

Wide receiver Devon Blackmon who totaled four receptions for 54 yards in the game caught one of Howard’s three other touchdown completions, with Marquis Thompson and Kendell Moore both attributing to the other two.

The Tigers remain second in the SoCal team standings with an 8-1 overall record and a 5-0 record in the Central Conference.

The Tigers trail the Fullerton Hornets in the SoCal standings.

The Hornets were the Tigers’ only loss of the season and remain undefeated.

The Tigers host the number three ranked Mt. SAC Mounties, also 8-1 for the season, on Nov. 16 at Wheelock Field.

With the Central Conference Title and an automatic berth into the four-team Southern California regional playoffs, the game is a must win for both programs.
