ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The St. John’s University Johnnies beat the St. Thomas University Tommies in a shocking 20-18 win, part of a legendary college football rivalry which brought fans out in droves Saturday in St. Paul.

With new head coach Gary Fashing, the Johnnies looked like they were going to meet the same fate as they had in the last three years when the Tommies took an early 8-0 lead.

But they bounced back by taking advantage of turnovers, which Sam Sura did often at South St. Paul High School.

Going in to the final play, St. John’s led by two, and the Tommies had a chance to win it on a field goal. But Paul Graupner, who hit a 53 yarder earlier, missed it.

The Johnnies were supposed to be rebuilding, but instead are now 3 and 0 and had the win of the season.
