Vermillion, SD - USD's first year in the Missouri Valley Conference did not go well. The Coyotes failed to win a conference game and went 1-10 overall under new head coach Joe Glenn. The good news is most of the players that took their lumps last season return with a chip on their shoulder this season. The Yotes bring back quarterback Josh Vander Maten and standout Linebacker Tyler Starr. They open up the season on August, 31 against UC Davis.
