Tomko finished the first quarter scoring by finding Jordan Wilson on another touchdown strike, this time for 65 yards.

In the second quarter, Tomko wasn't done as he once again found Strickland on a 30-yard touchdown toss to open the game up to a 31-0. Da'mon Rudolph ran in the first score of the game from 15-yards out to extend the advantage to 38-0. Late in the quarter, Tomko threw his 5th touchdown - to Williams on a 11-yard pass to take a 45-0 lead into the intermission. In the first half, Andrew completed 12 of 18 for over 300 yards.

The Tigers were at it again in the third quarter as Wilson scampered 16-yards for the score (52-0). Finally, in the opening minute of the final frame, J.P. McComb passed a touchdown to Frank Shaffer to end the scoring at 59-0.
