Fresh off its upset win over then No. 11 Northern Iowa, South Dakota is hitting the road for another important league game at Indiana State.
There's not a lot of history here. Saturday's matchup between the Coyotes (2-3, 1-1 MVFC) and Sycamores (3-3, 1-2) will be just the third meeting all-time. The teams played in both 2012 and 2013 with the home team claiming both contests. The most recent was a 17-14 win for South Dakota, which also, ironically, marks the last time the Coyotes were above .500 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
For more on this year's Sycamores, I caught up with the voice of Indiana State football, Brian Fritz:
