    Notes From Spring Practice

    South Dakota football's annual Spring Game starts at 1 p.m. Saturday inside the DakotaDome. It represents the 15th and final practice for the Coyotes during the spring season. A lot has happened in one month's time. Here is some of what we have learned:


    Jacks tie rivalry with 37-14 win

    BROOKINGS, S.D.--South Dakota State quarterback Austin Sumner passed for a career-high 395 yards and three touchdowns to lead the 15th-ranked Jackrabbits to a 37-14 win against South Dakota Saturday at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in what was the final regular season game for both teams.


    Earl accounts for four scores on Senior Day

    VERMILLION, S.D.--Illinois State running back Marshaun Coprich rushed for 221 yards and two scores to lead the seventh-ranked Redbirds to a 45-26 win against South Dakota Saturday inside the DakotaDome.


    Top-ranked Bison stay unbeaten

    VERMILLION, S.D.--North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz threw three touchdowns and running back John Crockett added 123 yards and a score on the ground as the top-ranked Bison defeated South Dakota 47-7 Saturday at the DakotaDome.


    Coyotes, Bears seeking first MVFC win

    South Dakota (2-4, 0-2 MVFC) opens the second half of its season against Missouri State (3-3, 0-2) at 2 p.m. Saturday at newly renovated Plaster Stadium in Springfield, Mo. It is the second week in a row that the Coyotes have been featured in the MVFC Game of the Week. The last two meetings between the programs have been decided by a field goal.
