Blugolds Struggle Against 2nd-Ranked Tommies

St. Paul, MN (WQOW) -- The UW-Eau Claire football team knew it faced a test against 2nd-ranked St. Thomas in the season opener. And unfortunately for the Blugolds, it's a test they did not pass.

The Tommies racked up 471 yards of offense in a 52-7 win over the Blugolds. Head coach Todd Glaser say it was a tough opponent for his young team to face in their season opener.

"You have to learn on the run. It's a tough deal," says Glaser. "We'd get a couple good things going in a row and we'd shoot ourselves in the foot and we have eliminate all that. I think when you look at your season or football team, your best improvement has to come between your first and your second game."

The Blugolds are back on the road, Saturday, against St. John's.
