For years, fans have asked, “Who would win if Northwestern and St. Thomas Aquinas played each other?”

They’ll get an answer this fall.

Northwestern and St. Thomas Aquinas agreed this week to play their mutual season opener at Sun Life Stadium on the weekend of Aug. 29-31. The date will be finalized once the schedules for the University of Miami and Miami Dolphins are released.

“It’s pretty much all set, we’re just working out a few of the details now,” Northwestern athletic director Andre Williams told The Miami Herald on Thursday morning.

The two programs have combined for 11 state championships and three national titles. St. Thomas Aquinas captured its seventh state crown this past season, winning the Class 7A championship, and won national titles in 2008 and 2010.

Northwestern went 9-3 last season, reaching the Class 6A regional semifinals before losing to eventual state champion Central.

Northwestern has won four state titles (1995, 1998, 2006, 2007), including a national championship in 2007.
