South Dakota holds off Missouri State 35-28
VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) Austin Simmons threw a go-ahead TD pass to Levi Falck early in the fourth quarter and South Dakota had a late goal-line stand to hold off Missouri State 35-28 on Saturday.
The Coyotes (3-2, 2-0 Missouri Valley Conference) were trailing 28-27 when Simmons hit Falck from 40 yards out and then Simmons connected with Dakarai Allen for the 2-point conversion to cap the scoring.
The Bears (3-2, 1-1) drove to the 1 with a chance to tie, but Donovan Daniels ran for no gain on a third-and-goal and was stuffed for a 2-yard loss on fourth with 2:22 left in the game.
Simmons finished 28 of 38 for 337 yards with one touchdown. South Dakota had no turnovers compared to Missouri State's three.
Peyton Huslig passed for 283 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns for Missouri State.
