LAST MEETING BETWEEN THE TEAMS
Last October, Blugold quarterback Austin Neu had a career day in the 37-28 loss to Stout. The Blue Devils scored 24 points in the first half and backed it up a 90-yard kickoff return to open the third quarter. Back-to-back passing touchdowns and another TD from a fourth-and-two situation brought the game within one score. But the Blue Devils sealed the deal with a pair of second half field goals to take the victory. Though the comeback fell short, Neu recorded the 15th most yards in a single game in Blugold history with 344. View Last Year's Full Recap
