MidcoSN Podcast: This Week In USD Football

If you were one of those that feared a South Dakota letdown following its emotional Dakota Days victory over Youngstown State, you probably felt a little silly as you watched the Coyotes dismantle Indiana State.

Bob Nielson's team piled up a season-best 705 yards of total offense en route to a 56-6 victory over the Sycamores, which moved them to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference.

Next Up

The Coyotes will tavel to Normal, Illinois with hopes of spoiling homecoming for No. 24 Illinois State.

The Redbirds (4-2, 2-1 MVFC) are coming off consecutive lopsided road losses at Northern Arizona (37-16) and Southern Illinois (42-7), but have never lost to South Dakota at Hancock Stadium (3-0).
