JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

Records: Trine 4-0 (0-0 in MIAA), Albion 1-3 (0-1)

When: 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: Sprankle-Sprandel Stadium,Albion, Michigan

Outlook: Trine has scored at least 44 points in its last three games and hasn't allowed more than 14 points all season. ... The Thunder is coming off a 44-7 victory over Concordia (Ilinois) in which it had a school-record six interceptions. ... Marcus Winters and Cayleel Hill have three interceptions apiece this season and Simeon Washington has 19 tackles (10 solo). ... Evan Wyse has completed 33 of 55 passes for 538 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions, and he's rushed 35 times for 311 yards and two touchdowns. His favorite receiver has been Jeffery Barnett, who has 13 catches for 209 yards and three touchdowns, and Lamar Carswell has rushed for 318 yards and seven touchdowns with 5.3 yards per carry. ... Albion is averaging 39 points per game, and allowing only 27.3 per game, but that is deceiving. The Britons' only victory came Sept. 16 at home against Concordia (Wisconsin) and the score was 79-7. Last week, Albion fell back to earth with a 34-32 loss at Adrian. ... Freshman Kyle Thomas has completed 59 of 104 passes for 879 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions, and he's rushed 39 times for 250 yards and two touchdowns. ... The Britons have some dangerous receivers, led by Sean Koski (13 catches, 166 yards) and Collin Poore (11 catches, 173 yards, 3 TDs). ... The run defense is porous, allowing 230.5 yards per game.
