Football Team's Magic Run Ends One Game Short
Earlier today, St. John's of Minnesota defeated RPI 38-10 to win a place in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the Division III Football national championship game. RPI and St. John's fought to a 10-10 tie at halftime. But, in the second half, St. John's constant defensive pressure kept quarterback Dan Cole on the run, while their offense found its traction.
Rensselaer ends its season champions of the East Region of Division III. This is the first time in 118 years that RPI has won an NCAA Football playoff game (they actually won two in a row). This was a fantastic season, worthy of being called the greatest in school history.
We will point to additional accounts of the game as they become available.
