  • Trine University Thunder expects return to winning way
    From 2008 through 2012, the Trine football program won 45 of 55 games, an average of nine victories a season. And the beat appeared to be continuing last September when the Thunder began 3-1.
  • Manchester University Spartans turn to inexperienced linemen
    The prospect of beginning a season with a new starting quarterback playing behind four first-year starters along the offensive line would be enough to send some head coaches searching for a bottle of TUMS.

College football preview: Trine at Albion

When: 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: Sparkel-Sprandle Stadium, Albion, Mich.

Scouting report: The Thunder hits the road trying to snap a two-game losing streak after dropping another tight one at home to Kalamazoo. In a seesaw game, Kalamazoo quarterback Justin Danzy, who dinged the Thunder defense for 423 passing yards and four touchdowns, hit Elijah Hamilton-Wray from 2 yards out with 5:54 to play to seal a 38-31 win. Albion, meanwhile, lost 31-6 to Central (Iowa) and has given up 146 points in four games (36.5 per game). That bodes well for a Thunder offense that scored just 35 points in its first two games but has averaged 33 points since. In last week’s loss, the Thunder put up 389 yards and got 221 passing yards from Andrew Dee and 165 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries from Richard Gunn.
