Jacks Finish High

The South Dakota State University football team posted top-15 finishes in each of the two major Football Championship Subdivision polls, which were released Monday.

The Jackrabbits checked in at No. 13 in the final Sports Network media poll, adding a 14th-place showing in the FCS Coaches Poll. It marked the second year in a row (14th, 17th, respectively, in 2012) that SDSU was ranked in both final polls.

SDSU, coached by John Stiegelmeier, finished the 2013 season with a 9-5 overall record, including a 5-3 mark in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. The Jackrabbits made their second consecutive appearance in the FCS playoffs and third in five seasons.

North Dakota State, which won its third straight FCS title last weekend, tops both polls.
