Jacks Open Football Season

The South Dakota State University football team kicks off the 2013 season Saturday night by hosting Butler (Ind.) in non-conference action. The game can be heard on 570 WNAX.
Kickoff is slated for 6:05 p.m. at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. Official game sponsor is South Dakota Corn.
The nationally ranked Jackrabbits are coming off a 2012 season in which they made their second appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs in four years. SDSU tied a school record for wins in a season en route to a 9-4 overall record and second-place finish in the Missouri Valley Football Conference with a 6-2 mark.
Butler, which is receiving votes in the preseason Sports Network media poll, also put together a successful season in 2012, finishing the campaign with an 8-3 overall record and a share of the Pioneer Football League title. The Bulldogs put together a seven-game winning streak against league foes before falling at Drake (Iowa) in the season finale.
Immediately following Saturday’s game will be a fireworks show.
