QUICK RECAP FROM BOZEMAN

Greetings from the Bozeman International Airport! While we're all waiting for our plane, here's a quick recap of a wild game between the Jacks and the Bobcats. In short, Zach Zenner was ridiculous and SDSU outlasted Montana State 47-40. Zenner accounted for 324 all-purpose yards and 5 touchdowns (a career-high). All of this, of course, happened in...

Greetings From Bozeman!

Hello from Bozeman, Montana as the Jacks get prepared for their 1st round playoff matchup with the Bobcats. For the third straight season, South Dakota State has made it to the FCS playoffs.

The Dakota Marker Showdown

This was a tough week for Jackrabbit fans. SDSU lost to Youngstown State on Hobo Day 30-27. The Jacks' record now stands at 5-3, with a 2-2 mark in Missouri Valley Conference Play. To me, this felt a lot like the Southern Illinois game last year (a contest the Jacks lost 27-24, ironically enough, on Hobo Day). SDSU played well in several respects,...
