Kevin Phelps knew he had a lot to make up for. The Centre College quarterback had four first-half turnovers Saturday - three interceptions and a fumble - and was nearly benched by coach Andy Frye as the Colonels trailed Rhodes 14-7. But the junior engineered four second-half scoring drives, two of which he scored on, and did not turn the ball over as the Colonels rallied and beat the Lynx 31-27 at Farris Stadium for their third straight win to start the season. "I wasn't thinking a bit about it in the second half.

The Centre College offense faces one of its biggest challenges of the season this weekend, but that doesn't mean the defense gets a pass. The Colonels' defense will be asked to do its part by stopping a steadily improving Rhodes offense in the homecoming game Saturday at Farris Stadium. That should keep the Colonels in a contest in which points figure to be at a premium. "In my opinion, it's going to be a low-scoring game," Frye said. "You never know how it's going to play out, but I think it'll be low scoring.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A goal-line stand by the Centre College defense and a 95-yard touchdown run by Jonathan Pinque helped the Colonels fight off a rally by Rhodes and preserve a 23-15 win Saturday.

When Centre College packs for its trip to Texas later this week, this win should fit nicely in its luggage. The Colonels will be playing for a conference championship and a NCAA playoff bid next weekend, and they'll be riding high into the Lone Star State after their 37-10 win over Rhodes on Saturday. Centre rolled to a dominating victory that coach Andy Frye said sets his team up as well as possible for its crucial game at Trinity. "We needed this momentum going to Texas," Frye said.
