SDSU beats Illinois State in OT, 27-24; North Dakota State rolls to 49-14 win over USD
- November 12, 2017

BROOKINGS, S.D. — Taryn Christion accounted for three touchdowns, Chase Vinatieri kicked a 43-yard field goal in overtime, and South Dakota State improved its FCS playoff chances with a 27-24 victory over Illinois State on Saturday.

South Dakota State (8-2, 5-2 Missouri Valley Conference), ranked sixth in the FCS poll, has won four straight and is a game back of North Dakota State atop the conference standings. The 17th-ranked Redbirds (6-4, 4-3) have lost two in a row.

Illinois State's James Robinson, who finished with 83 yards rushing and two touchdown runs, bullied up the middle from 5 yards out for a score to tie the game 24-24 with just over two minutes remaining.

In overtime, The Redbirds' Sean Slattery hooked his 41-yard field goal attempt before Vinatieri's kick split the uprights.

Christion threw two touchdown passes in the first half, and ran for an 84-yard score in the fourth quarter. He had 172 yards passing and ran for another 110.

Meanwhile, Ty Brooks ran for three touchdowns as North Dakota State rolled to a 49-14 win over South Dakota on Saturday.

Brooks had 152 yards on nine carries for the Bison (9-1, 6-1 Missouri Valley Conference). Easton Stick threw for 307 yards and a score and ran for another touchdown. North Dakota State amassed 647 total yards and held the Coyotes (7-3, 4-3) to 419 yards.

Bruce Anderson ran for a score late in the first quarter to give the Bison a 14-7 advantage and they led the rest of the way. Seth Anderson ran 28 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter and Brooks went 54 yards for another score and NDSU was up 28-14 at the break.

The victory puts the Bison back on track after losing their first game of the season last week, a 33-21 loss at South Dakota State.

Chris Streveler had 232 yards passing and 93 yards and two touchdowns rushing for the Coyotes.
