HOUGHTON (AP) — Louis Hyde kicked a 39-yard field goal with 59 seconds to play and St. Thomas rallied for a historic 12-9 win over Michigan Tech in its NCAA Division I FCS debut on Saturday.

Tight end Aiden Carlson pulled the Tommies into a 9-9 tie when he recovered quarterback Tommy Dolan’s fumble on 1st and goal in the end zone with 5:43 to play but the extra point was blocked.
