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.
