The Coyotes trailed by one heading into the fourth quarter but were able to outscore Missouri State 8-0 in the 4tih to secure the 35-28 win.

USD will look for their fourth win of the season next Saturday as they will play host to Northern Iowa.

South Dakota State also picked up a win on Saturday doing so in dramatic fashion as well.

The Jackrabbits had to go to OT to pull off the win and took down Indiana State 54-51.

Indiana State put up 24 points in the fourth quarter to force OT, but the Jacks did what was needed in overtime to secure the win.

The 105 total points were the most ever scored at Dana J Dykehouse Stadium history.
