VERMILLION, S.D.--For the first time since 2003, the South Dakota State Jackrabbits and the South Dakota Coyotes faced off in the DakotaDome.
Jason Schneider caught two touchdown passes from Austin Sumner for No. 19 SDSU and the Jackrabbits beat their in-state rivals, 27-12.
SDSU outscored USD 14-0 in the fourth quarter to pull away from the Coyotes, as Schneider caught his second touchdown pass and Winston Wright returned a David Earl interception 80 yards for a touchdown.
South Dakota falls to 4-7 (3-4) with the loss. The Coyotes travel to No. 1 North Dakota State next Saturday to take on the Bison.
