Jacks To Tackle Huskers

The South Dakota State football team closes the non-conference portion of its schedule Saturday afternoon, traveling to Nebraska for a regional matchup against the Cornhuskers. The game can be heard on 570 WNAX.
Kickoff is scheduled for 2:42 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb.
The Jackrabbits, ranked sixth in both major Football Championship Subdivision polls, enter the game with a 3-0 record following a 34-26 come-from-behind victory Sept. 14 over Southeastern Louisiana. SDSU will be in search of its first 4-0 start since 2000, when the Jackrabbits played at the NCAA Division II level.
Nebraska, meanwhile, is 2-1 following a 41-21 home loss last week to UCLA. The loss knocked the Cornhuskers out of the rankings, although Nebraska is still receiving votes.
Saturday’s game is scheduled to be televised on the Big Ten Network.
