St. Olaf College scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and posted a 28-23 come-from-behind victory over Luther (0-1) at Carlson Stadium Saturday.
The loss was the ninth in a row to the Oles.
"I feel for this team as they have worked very hard up to this point, and it didn't go exactly as planned," commented Head Coach Mike Durnin. "However, this group believes in the process. They have worked so diligently for the past eight months, and I am confident they will rise up and continue to give 100 percent to being the best they can be on the field of competition."
Luther made things interesting in the final minutes, pulling within the final tally, when Drew Helle pulled down a Kody Moore pass for a touchdown with 1:41 left in the game, completing a four play, 75-yard drive.
