It was the Tigers' Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener and the loss snapped a six-game win streak dating back to 2006.
The Golden Rams (3-1, 2-0) scored on consecutive possessions to open a 21-7 lead late in the first half.
Peter Obradovic drilled a 31-yard field goal with 68 seconds left in the quarter and the Tigers trailed 21-10 at halftime.
A week after throwing for more than 400 yards, quarterback Charles McCullum completed just 15-of-37 passes for 171 yards with a touchdown and interception. He also rushed for 69 yards.
McCullum's lone touchdown pass was a 16-yard effort to Jeremie Parham in the second quarter that tied the game at 7.
A 3-yard touchdown run by Brandon Long brought Stillman with four points on the opening drive of the second half but the Tigers were unable to add any more points.
