Each of Adkins’ five touchdown passes were to a different member of the Tigers’ offense.

Wide receiver Breon Redman threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Jamil Austin, to bring the Tigers within one point of the Warriors at 15-14.

Running back E.J. Schexnayder produced 126 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown for the Tigers’ offense on the ground against the Warriors.

Scroggins also rushed for eight yards and one touchdown on the ground against the Tigers’ defense.

With nine seconds remaining in the first half, Adkins connected with receiver Devon Brown for a 24-yard touchdown.

As time expired in the first half, Scroggins answered back by throwing a 68-yard hail mary pass to receiver Luckner Brady for a touchdown.
