FCS FOOTBALL: Full Week 6 scoreboard | Stats

1. South Dakota defended the DakotaDome in a 60-minute battle

It did not take long for No. 3 Youngstown State running back Tevin McCaster to tally the touchdown category after he scampered in 5 minutes into Saturday’s battle with No. 6 South Dakota. However, the touchdown was answered by South Dakota’s star of the day, Chris Streveler. In a game that bounced back and forth, the two squads took different approaches on offense. The Penguins capitalized on the ground, led by McCaster who took 22 carries, four of them into the end zone. The Coyotes shined through the air, led by quarterback, Streveler, who tossed for 360 yards and three touchdowns. Shamar Jackson led South Dakota’s receiving core with 229 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown catch to begin the second half and give the Coyotes a 28-14 lead. McCaster answered the call, however, and scored twice to tie the game at 28 with 3:39 left for South Dakota to work with. After being quiet since the beginning of the second half, the Coyote’s offense began churning again and marched down the field to the 12-yard line with seven seconds to play. A Ryan Weese 29-yard field goal was the difference as time expired.

South Dakota 31, Youngstown State 28
