The Minnesota Twins confirmed rumors this morning, that the 2017 football match-up between St. John's and St. Thomas will be played at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, September 23rd.

This will be the first football game ever held at Target Field.

The Johnnies/Tommies match-up accounts for three of the top-five NCAA Division III attended games of all time, and a game at Target Field could see all other D-III attendance marks shattered.

I guess they figured that since the Twins won't likely be using the stadium for September baseball -- they might as well schedule a football game. :)
