St. Thomas coach Glenn Caruso has announced his 2013 football schedule. The Tommies will play the same 10 opponents as last season, in the same order, but at the opposite site.
One change will come in week two when the Tommies play at UW-River Falls on Thursday Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. It's believed to be the first Thursday night game in recent school history.
All other games will kickoff at 1:10 p.m. UST is home Sept. 7 to play UW-Eau Claire. The Toms open their MIAC season at home Sept. 21 against archrival St. John's.
All St. Thomas regular-season and potential playoff games will air live on WCCO Radio 830 AM.
St. Thomas will return 16 of 24 starters from a school-record 14-1 team that won its third consecutive MIAC championship and reached the Division III national title game for the first time in school history.
