Northern Iowa rallies late to knock off South Dakota; SDSU takes down NDSU
The Associated Press - November 5, 2017

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Marcus Weymiller scored on an 8-yard run with 3:02 left and Keelon Brookins sealed the victory with a 29-yard pick-6 as Northern Iowa rallied for a 34-29 upset win over South Dakota on Saturday.

South Dakota turned it over on three straight fourth-quarter possessions — two of which the Panthers (5-4, 4-2 Missouri Valley Conference) turned into touchdowns.

South Dakota led 23-13 after Brett Samson's 11-yard TD run with 12:37 left in the third quarter. But Eli Dunne jump-started the comeback when he connected with Isaiah Weston for a 4-yard score to cut the Coyotes' lead to 23-20 with 3:56 left in the third.

Chris Streveler hooked up with Dakarai Allen from 4 yards out with 11 seconds remaining to cap the scoring for the Coyotes (7-2, 4-2).

Dunne passed for 228 yards and two TDs and Weymiller finished with 69 yards on 24 carries.

Streveler completed 34 of 51 passes for 401 yards and two scores, but he was also intercepted twice.

The Panthers are 3-1 in their last four games — all against top-ten teams.

Meanwhile, Taryn Christion threw for 329 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as South Dakota State handed North Dakota State its first loss of the season, 33-21, on Saturday in a clash of two top-10 FCS teams.

Christion threw touchdown passes to Dallas Goedert, who had 116 yards receiving on seven catches, and Jacob Brown. Jake Wieneke had two catches for 59 yards that moved him past Jerry Rice and into third place all-time in FCS receiving yards at 4,730.

Mikey Daniel's 5-yard run and Chase Vinatieri's second field goal of the game gave the Jackrabbits (7-2, 3-2 Missouri Valley Conference) a 27-14 lead after three quarters. Easton Stick's 11-yard run, coming two plays after a Jackrabbits fumble, cut the lead to 27-21 early in the fourth quarter but Goedert's 19-yard TD grab capped a nearly seven-minute drive to give South Dakota State insurance with 7:06 left.

Stick threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns but also threw three interceptions. NDSU also lost two fumbles with the season-high five turnovers leading to 17 points. Despite the loss, the Bison (8-1, 5-1) remain atop the Missouri Valley Conference.
