Jacks Seek Playoff Spot

The South Dakota State University football team will attempt to make one final push toward a possible playoff berth Saturday, when the Jackrabbits travel to Youngstown State for a matchup between nationally ranked teams.
Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. Central) at Stambaugh Stadium in Youngstown, Ohio. The game can be heard on 570 WNAX.
The Jackrabbits, whose current three-game winning streak matches a season high, enter Saturday’s contest with a 7-4 overall record and 4-3 mark in Missouri Valley Football Conference play. SDSU, which is ranked 16th in this week’s Sports Network media poll and 17th by the FCS Coaches, secured its eighth winning season in 10 years competing at the Football Championship Subdvision with a 27-12 road win Nov. 16 over in-state rival South Dakota.
Youngstown State, meanwhile, has lost its last two games to fall to 8-3 overall and 5-2 in the MVFC. The Penguins dropped a 22-20 decision at Northern Iowa on Nov. 9, followed by a 35-17 home defeat at the hands of top-ranked North Dakota State last week. Youngstown State is ranked 15th by the Sports Network and 18th by the FCS Coaches this week.
