ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) St. Thomas built an early lead and held on to defeat Valparaiso 20-13 in the Tommies' homecoming game on Saturday.
St. Thomas, in its first season at Division I, extended its on-campus regular-season winning streak to 29 games.
Cade Sexauer completed 11 of 21 passes for 98 yards for the Tommies (3-2, 2-1 Pioneer League). He added 46 rushing yards on 16 carries, with one touchdown. Tom Loeffler scored on short TD runs of two and six yards.
Valpo (1-5, 1-2) scored its only touchdown on a 35-yard pass from Ben Nimz to Braden Contreras that cut the St. Thomas lead to seven with under 6:30 remaining.
The Tommies intercepted Nimz on Valpo's next possession then ran out the final 4:47 with 11 consecutive running plays, twice converting on third down and once on fourth.
