Franklin and Marshall defeated Oberlin 30-6, holding its opponent to seven first downs and 130 total yards of offense. Lineman Andy Rehring had eight tackles, including two for loss, in the victory.
The Colonels took advantage of Kenyon last week, picking up 422 yards of offense with 271 coming on the ground. Senior Lorenzo Engleman rushed for 189 of those and was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference player of the week for his efforts.
Frye said he hopes the Colonels' ground game will continue to open up the passing game for junior quarterback Brian Behrendt.
"Lorenzo obviously had an outstanding game," Frye said. "I think we have to feature Lorenzo and at the same time, we also have a wealth of talent in our receiving corps. This should give us an opportunity to take advantage of throwing the football."
Offensively, the Diplomats are led by quarterback Jeff Harner, who was 17-for-33 passing against Oberlin for 226 yards. Scott Stephen scored three times for Franklin and Marshall, picking up 86 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and catching six passes for 52 yards and a score.
"They're not a big-play offense, but they try to methodically drive the football on you, and they're very good at that," Frye said. "They're a good ball-control offense."
Frye is anxious to see how his special teams players perform, considering the punt team didn't get much work against Kenyon.
"I think the big thing here is what we do special-teams wise," Frye said. "There was not a lot of special teams play in our game. I think some of those are question marks and I'm looking forward to seeing how they pan out.
"To win this game, it's going to come down to who makes fewer mistakes. I hope we can take advantage of our preseason work and minimize our mistakes."
