St. Scholastica plays at two-time defending Upper Midwest Athletic Conference champion and preseason favorite Greenville (Ill.) College at 1 p.m. today in the league opener for both teams.

Since falling to the Panthers last October, St. Scholastica has won five straight -- the second-best current streak in Minnesota college football after Minnesota Duluth -- and was picked to finish second behind Greenville in the UMAC preseason coaches' poll.

The Saints (1-0) are coming off a 34-21 victory at Lawrence University on Sept. 3 as senior quarterback Alex Thiry was 18-for-23 passing for 211 yards and three touchdowns and sophomore running back Jake Jensen rushed 30 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Senior linebacker Sean Graskey of Superior led the defense with 12 tackles, including a sack.

Greenville (0-1) had three turnovers in a 51-13 loss to Millikin last week. Sophomore quarterback Brendan Chambers led the Panthers with 144 passing yards and 114 rushing yards.
