ASHLAND, Ore.--The Southern Oregon Raiders continued their perfect season on Saturday, blowing out Dickinson State 55-24 in the first round of the NAIA playoffs.
With the win, the Raiders advance to the quarterfinal round for the fourth time in six years. They will hit the road to take on No. 4 Lindsey Wilson in Kentucky next Saturday in what will be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
SOU rode a wave of early game big plays to a 14-0 lead after two offensive possessions.
Senior quarterback Tanner Trosin threw for 384 yards and four touchdowns, and picked up 85 yards on the ground. He distributed the ball to 11 different receivers--Jordan Suell, Dominic Giampaoli and Rey Vega each hauling in touchdowns.
The 630 yards of total offense for the Raiders was their most in 20 games.
On the defensive side, senior safety Oshay Dunmore had another standout performance. He recorded six tackles (two of which were for loss and one of which was a sack), a forced fumble and an acrobatic one-handed interception.
Raiders head coach Charlie Hall joined NewsWatch 12's College Gameday to break down the SOU win, which was likely the team's last home game of the season.
