Jacks Go For Third Straight

The nationally ranked South Dakota State University football team will be in search of its first 3-0 start since 2009 when it takes to the field against Southeastern Louisiana in the 47th Annual Beef Bowl.
Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. The Beef Bowl barbecue runs from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. south of the stadium and a youth football clinic is scheduled from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on the practice fields east of the stadium.
The Jackrabbits, who are ranked sixth in both the Sports Network media and FCS Coaches polls, are coming off a 35-28 victory Sept. 7 at North Dakota.
Southeastern Louisiana, which is receiving votes in the media poll, is 1-1 so far in 2013. The Lions recorded a 45-7home victory over Southeast Missouri in their season opener Aug. 29, before dropping a 38-17 decision at Texas Christian last week
In addition to Saturday’s game being the Beef Bowl, the Jackrabbit football team is raising awareness for Samaritan’s Feet. The non-profit organization provides shoes for deserving children both locally and around the world.
