Centre (1-2, 0-1 in the SCAC) took an early 7-0 lead, but the Tigers (2-0, 1-0) battled back to tie the game and take a lead they never relinquished. A final drive by the Colonels was stopped by the DePauw defense.

Senior quarterback Michael Engle, last week's SCAC Offensive Player of the Week, connected on 29-of-36 passes for 252 yards and one Koors_Alex.jpgtouchdown as well as an interception.  He completed ten passes to Alex Koors and nine passes to Brayden Dahlstrom.  With his performance tonight, Koors (pictured at right) moved ahead of Dan Ryan '03 into third place on the all-time receptions list.

Jon Ellis led the Tiger rushing attack with 50 yards on 13 carries, including a touchdown.  Derrick Karazsia picked up 40 yards on 11 rushes and a TD.

Next Saturday, the Tigers return home for a 1 p.m. SCAC game versus Sewanee (University of the South).
