On behalf of the Department of Animal and Range Sciences, welcome to the 2010 Beef Bowl! This year is the 44th anniversary of this timeless tradition here at SDSU and we are proud to be a part of it. The Beef Industry in South Dakota is a major part of our state’s economy. It has been estimated that the Beef Industry contributes $3.72 billion to South Dakota’s economy. That is more than 6 percent of the entire economic output of the state. It takes good people to make the Beef Industry what it is and we have many of them right here. There are well over 15,000 beef producers in South Dakota and the quality of the cattle they produce is known throughout the country as being among the best. The Beef Bowl was developed to promote the Beef Industry and to recognize the efforts of those hard-working people who make the industry what it is today. Regardless of whether you prefer cheeseburgers, T-bone steaks, or filet mignon, if you enjoy eating beef, please share a word of thanks with these fine people. The Department of Animal and Range Sciences focuses efforts in three primary areas: teaching, research, and Extension. Student enrollment has continued to grow steadily and we look forward to that trend continuing into the future. We have numerous award-winning teachers in the department and take a great deal of pride in our undergraduate teaching program. Our Beef Leaders’ Program is also in full swing with the first cohort of students in the midst of their second year of the program. These talented young men and women are passionate about agriculture and will be outstanding leaders for the Beef Industry for years to come. Researchers in the department have worked diligently to find answers to the key questions raised by beef producers in the state. Much of the applied research has focused on utilization of alternative feeds like distillers grains, improving reproductive performance of beef females, optimizing grazing systems, and improving beef quality. Our team of Extension specialists and educators continue to develop programs to provide the most current information available to help improve the profitability and sustainability of the beef industry here in South Dakota and across the nation. One of the biggest annual events for the Department of Animal and Range Sciences is the Beef Bowl Barbeque hosted by the faculty, staff, and students from the department. All of the proceeds from the barbeque go to support scholarships for undergraduate students in the Department of Animal and Range Sciences. Hopefully, you had a chance to visit with us prior to the game. If you didn’t get a chance to visit with us this year, we would sure welcome you to stop by next fall and share in a great beef sandwich and some genuine SDSU ice cream. Again, welcome to the Beef Bowl and GO JACKS!

2010 Jackrabbit Football
The South Dakota State University football team will be in search of its first victory of the season as it hosts nationally ranked Western Illinois in the 44th Annual Beef Bowl at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. At 0-4, the Jackrabbits will be attempting to avoid their worst start in program history. No SDSU team has ever started the season 0-5 — the closest being the 1965 squad which went 0-4-1 through its first five games. Western Illinois, meanwhile, has engineered a dramatic turnaround under head coach Mark Hendrickson. Picked to finish eighth in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, the Fighting Leathernecks enter tonight’s game 4-1 overall, including a 2-0 mark in league play, after a 28-16 victory last week at North Dakota State. WIU broke into the national polls this week, checking in at No. 20 in both the Sports Network/Fathead.com media poll and the FCS Coaches rankings. THE SERIES: Tonight’s matchup marks the eighth meeting between Western Illinois and South Dakota State on the gridiron. WIU holds a 4-3 advantage, although the Jackrabbits have won each of the last two meetings. In last year’s contest, which was played Nov. 21 in Macomb, Ill., the Jackrabbits wasted little time in setting the tone by scoring in the opening minute of the game, en route to a 27-7 victory in the regular season finale. On the second play from scrimmage, Kyle Minett broke through the right side of the line for a 39-yard touchdown run. WIU answered to tie the game at 7-all, but the Jackrabbits rattled off the final 20 points. Minett scored his second touchdown of the day with a 1-yard run early in the second quarter, and SDSU took advantage of a blocked punt late in the first half as Thomas O’Brien hooked up with Glen Fox on a 10-yard touchdown pass. Defensively, the Jackrabbits recorded four sacks, including three by All-America defensive end Danny Batten. Minett ended the day with 147 yards on 23 carries as the Jackrabbits sealed a berth in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: The South Dakota State University football team has enjoyed a home-field advantage at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium since making the move to the Football Championship Subdivision level. Since joining the FCS ranks at the start of the 2004 season, the Jackrabbits have posted a 25-8 mark at CAS, including a 7-2 record in Missouri Valley Football Conference games. Lights were installed at CAS prior to the 2001 season and SDSU has turned in a 20-6 record in home night games. Overall, SDSU has compiled a 158-99 record in 49 seasons at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium.

2010 Jackrabbit Football
HEAD COACH JOHN STIEGELMEIER
ohn Stiegelmeier has built the South Dakota State University football team into a consistent winner and a program on the rise in the ranks of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision.
Overall, Coach Stig has led the Jackrabbits to an 83-64 record (.565 winning percentage). SDSU has posted eight consecutive winning seasons, including the school’s first six campaigns at the FCS (formerly Division IAA) level. The Jackrabbits have had a winning record in 11 of Stiegelmeier’s 13 years as head coach, including six with seven or more wins. The 2009 season proved to be a memorable one as Stiegelmeier led the Jackrabbits to their first FCS playoff appearance and the program’s first postseason appearance in 30 years. The Jackrabbits finished as runner-up in the Missouri Valley Football Conference with a 7-1 record and finished the season 8-4 overall. Nationally ranked for the entire season, including appearing in the top 10 for two weeks, the Jacks finished the 2009 campaign ranked 11th in both the FCS Coaches' and Sports Network media polls. In 2008, the Jackrabbits entered another new era in their Division I pursuits as they joined the nine-team Missouri Valley Football Conference. With the transition from Division II completed, SDSU fell just short of a playoff berth in its first season of eligibility, ending the year with a 7-5 overall record and 6-2 mark in the MVFC. Of SDSU’s five losses, four came against ranked FCS opponents, including conference co-champions Northern Iowa and Southern Illinois. The team’s other loss was at the hands of Football Bowl Subdivision opponent Iowa State in the season opener. The Jackrabbits cracked the FCS national polls for the first time in late October 2006, after posting back-to-back come-from-behind victories over Cal Poly and UC Davis. After climbing as high as No. 19 on the final week of the regular season, the Jackrabbits finished the 2006 season ranked 22nd by the Sports Network. SDSU began the 2007 season in a preseason national poll for the first time, checking in at No. 20 in the Sports Network poll. The Jackrabbits dropped out of the rankings after a season-opening loss and didn’t return to the top 25 until the final poll of the season with a 19th-place showing. The Jackrabbits continued their ascension at the FCS level during the 2008 season, reaching the 12th spot in the Sports Network poll after opening league play with home victories over No. 14 Youngstown State and No. 15 Western Illinois in back-to-back weeks. In all, SDSU was ranked seven weeks. During the 2007 season, SDSU claimed its first conference title since 1963 by winning the Great West Football Conference championship. After starting 0-3 for the second consecutive season, SDSU reeled off seven wins in its final eight games, including a 29-24 victory over previously undefeated North Dakota State the final week of the season, to claim the GWFC title with a 7-4 overall record and 4-0 mark in league play. In leading SDSU to the GWFC title, Stiegelmeier was named conference coach of the year and was honored by the American Football Coaches Association as the Division I Football Championship Subdivision Region 5 Coach of the Year. In addition, he was named as one of five finalists in the FCS for the 2007 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award. After posting back-to-back 6-5 seasons in 2004 and 2005, the Jackrabbits rose another notch in 2006 as they compiled a 7-4 overall record, finishing the season ranked 21st in the final FCS poll conducted by The Sports Network and 22nd in the College Sporting News coaches’ poll. Following an 0-3 start, the Jackrabbits rebounded by winning seven consecutive games for the first time since 1963. Three of the victories came in the closing minutes against nationally ranked teams, setting up a showdown with North Dakota State on the final week of the season for both the Dakota Marker and Great West Football Conference title. Although SDSU fell short in the championship game, the Jackrabbits finished with their most victories since 2003 and their best mark in the three-year history of the GWFC at 3-1. Stiegelmeier, 53, is the 20th head coach for the Jackrabbits. His tenure of 13 years as head coach is the second-longest head coaching stint in school history. The Selby, S.D., native first became acquainted with the Jackrabbit football program as a student assistant under John Gregory during SDSU’s only other NCAA playoff season in 1979. With the Jackrabbits’ victory at McNeese State (La.) on Sept. 30, 2006, Stiegelmeier passed Gregory (55-50-3 from 1972-81) for sole possession of second place on the SDSU career wins list. After graduating from SDSU with degrees in mathematics and physical education, Stiegelmeier enrolled in graduate school at the University of Northern Iowa, where he served on the coaching staff of a Panther squad which posted a 7-4 mark in 1981. Stiegelmeier coached at Eau Claire (Wis.) North High School from 198184, then returned to his home state as defensive coordinator, secondary coach and recruiting coordinator at Northern State University from 1984-87. Northern was 8-3 in his last season with the Wolves and finished fourth in the nation in total defense. Stiegelmeier returned to his alma mater in July 1988, joining Wayne Haensel’s Jackrabbit coaching staff as secondary coach and recruiting coordinator. After Haensel stepped down following the 1990 season, Stiegelmeier was elevated to defensive coordinator by new head coach Mike Daly. In six seasons as defensive coordinator, Stiegelmeier helped guide the Jackrabbits to a 41-23 record, turning in a winning record in all six seasons, including five seven-win seasons. That track record of success helped Stiegelmeier secure his first head coaching position in December 1996, when he was named Daly’s successor.

Assistant Head Coach • Offensive Coordinator • Offensive Line
uke Meadows continues his long association with South Dakota State University football as he enters his ninth season as offensive line coach. The longest-tenured assistant on John Stiegelemeier’s coaching staff, Meadows is in his fifth year with the role of assistant head coach and also holds the title of offensive coordinator. A Hot Springs native, Meadows began his coaching career as an undergraduate student at SDSU. After earning a bachelor’s degree in 1999, he continued on as a graduate assistant with the Jackrabbits during the 1999 and 2000 seasons, coaching the running backs, including Jackrabbit career rushing leader and AllAmerican Josh Ranek. He then spent a season as offensive line coach at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, before returning to SDSU in July 2002. In 2005, Meadows coached an offensive line that helped pave the way for the leading rushing attack in the Great West Football Conference, averaging 227.4 yards per game. During Meadows’ time on staff, the Jackrabbits have posted four of the top 10 single-season rushing totals in school history and five of the top 10 single-game rushing performances. In addition, SDSU has recorded four of the top-10 scoring averages in the program’s history, including 35.6 points per game in 2008. The 2008 squad also set an SDSU single-season record with 427 points in 12 games, scoring 40 or more points in a game six times. With Meadows on the coaching staff, SDSU has established 11 team single-game and single-season offensive records, including rolling up 689 yards of total offense in the 2005 Hobo Day victory over Missouri-Rolla. Jackrabbit players he has coached also have established 30 new individual school records during his tenure. Under his guidance, Meadows has coached offensive linemen who have combined for six first-team all-conference selections and second-team accolades 10 times, including 2009 honorees Ryan McKnight (first team) and Casey Knips (second team). Three of his former pupils — Mitch Erickson (Seattle Seahawks), Casey Bender (Cleveland Browns) and Casey Knips (Arizona Cardinals) — were in NFL training camps this summer. As a unit, the Jackrabbit offensive line yielded only 12 sacks for the entire season en route to winning the 2007 Great West Football Conference championship. Meadows also played a key role in SDSU’s successful transition to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision by serving as the program’s recruiting coordinator for much of his tenure.
Co-Defensive Coordinator • Defensive Line Coach • Recruiting Coordinator
lint Brown enters his second season as an assistant coach with the South Dakota State University football program, filling the roles of co-defensive coordinator, defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator. In 2009 with the Jackrabbits, Brown helped direct a defense that played a prominent role in SDSU’s berth in the Football Championship Subdivison playoffs. SDSU ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the season, before finishing the year ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other defensive categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game). Brown also served as position coach for All-America defensive end Danny Batten, who was honored as Co-Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was later selected in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. Brown has coached at the collegiate level for 16 years. Most recently, Brown served as the defensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator and assistant head coach at Wayne State College (Neb.) for four seasons. During his tenure at Wayne, the Wildcats improved from four wins the first season to a 9-3 record and NCAA Division II playoff berth in 2008.

Co-Defensive Coordinator • Secondary
ay Bubak (last name is pronounced BOO-bock), begins his sixth season on the Jackrabbit coaching staff as co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach at South Dakota State University.
During the 2009 season, Bubak helped mentor a defense that ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the year, before finishing the campaign ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game — its best showing in six seasons at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (14th, 104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game). During the Jackrabbits’ run to the Great West Football Conference title in 2007, SDSU led the league in scoring defense (22.2) despite playing four teams that ranked in the top 15 for scoring in FCS. The Jackrabbits also led the GWFC in turnover margin (plus-14), creating a league-best 31 takeaways. In addition, SDSU ranked second in pass defense (202.7 yards per game) and sacks (26). Five defensive players earned first-team allGWFC recognition, with three others honored on the second team. Both of SDSU’s starting cornerbacks, Brock Gentile and Tyler Koch, were honored on the all-GWFC First Team after combining for 10 interceptions. Koch also was named to All-America squads by The Associated Press and Sports Network after tallying a league-best seven interceptions, three of which he returned for scores. SDSU also played for the Great West title in 2006 as the Jackrabbit defense allowed only 21.4 points per game. A 1993 graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Neb., Bubak previously spent six seasons at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, Mo. After joining the Griffons’ coaching staff as secondary coach in 1999, Bubak was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000, a position he filled for five seasons. While at Missouri Western, he helped lead the Griffons to a share of their first-ever Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association title in football during the 2003 season, finishing the season 9-3 overall and 7-2 in league play. The 2003 squad led the league with 30 turnovers forced and 33 sacks, paced by All-America free safety Pierre Thomas, who led all divisions of the NCAA with 14 interceptions and 362 interception return yards. As a player, Bubak was a four-year letterman and team defensive most valuable player at safety for Nebraska Wesleyan University, in Lincoln, Neb, from 1989-92. He received all-conference and CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition, while also serving as team captain. NWU won two league championships and made a pair of NAIA playoff appearances. Bubak began his coaching career in 1993 at Nebraska Wesleyan as an assistant in charge of the secondary. After a two-year stint as the defensive backfield and quarterbacks coach at Chase County High School in his native Imperial, Neb., he moved on to the University of South Dakota, where he served two years as a graduate assistant working with the linebackers and one year as a full-time assistant coach, working with the defensive backs and special teams. Two players he tutored, Matt Chatham and Josh Stamer, went on to play in the NFL.
JOSH DAVIS Wide Receivers
osh Davis will face the challenge of molding a young group of wide receivers as he begins his second full season as a member of the South Dakota State University football coaching staff.
During the Jackrabbits’ 2009 playoff-qualifying season, Davis mentored a veteran group of receivers led by two-time second-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection Glen Fox. The senior trio of Fox, Mike Steffen and Saunders Montague combined to account for 142 receptions, 1,875 yards and 10 touchdowns. A native of Omaha, Neb., Davis previously served as a graduate assistant on John Stiegelmeier’s coaching staff during the 2007 season and also served as a student intern in 2006 while completing his bachelor’s degree in health, physical education and recreation. He further gained coaching experience at the collegiate level by mentoring the wide receivers at Council Bluffs-based Iowa Western Community College in the spring of 2009. A record-setting wide receiver at SDSU from 2002-05, Davis still holds the Jackrabbit career mark of 225 receptions, while his 3,192 receiving yards rank second on the all-time SDSU charts. In addition, Davis holds the SDSU single-game record with 16 receptions, a feat he accomplished against Western Washington in 2002. He recorded at least 40 receptions in all four seasons and led the team in catches three times, including 70 in 2002, a figure which ranks in a tie for second place on the Jackrabbit single-season charts. Davis was a first-team all-North Central Conference selection in 2003 and was a second-team all-Great West Football Conference honoree in 2005, the Jackrabbits’ second season competing in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision. In addition to his coaching duties, Davis helps coordinate the team’s travel and camps.

ric Eidsness rejoins the Jackrabbit coaching staff as quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator after serving as head coach at Southwest Minnesota State for the past six seasons.
In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Eidsness also serves as the program’s pro liasion.

In five seasons directing the offense at SDSU, the Jackrabbits averaged 27.6 points per game while competing at the Division II level. During his tenure, the Jackrabbits set numerous school records both rushing the ball with All-America running back Josh Ranek and throwing the ball with quarterback Dan Fjeldheim. Eidsness left SDSU after the 2003 season to become head coach at Southwest Minnesota State. He compiled a 26-40 career record during his tenure on the Mustang sideline, which included a 6-5 season in 2008 — only the eighth winning season in school history.

Junior Derek Domino was honored as a first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection, while seniors Chris Johnson and Jimmy Rogers received honorable mention accolades. All three ranked among the team’s top six tacklers, combining for 241 tackles and 17 tackles for loss. The linebackers played a prominent role on a defensive unit that ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the year, before finishing the campaign ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game — its best showing in six seasons at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other defensive categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game).

He was elevated to the head coaching position after serving as the team’s defensive coordinator in 2001, during which his unit ranked 10th in the NAIA ranks for pass defense and 18th in total defense. After serving as an assistant high school coach for one season, Mennenga began his collegiate coaching career in 1994 as a graduate assistant at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Mo. He was later hired as a full-time assistant, coaching the secondary during the 1995 and 1996 seasons. In 1997, Mennenga moved up to the Division I-AA (now FCS) level, coaching the outside linebackers for a Western Kentucky team that reached the quarterfinals of the playoffs. The next year, Mennenga became a coordinator for the first time as he was hired as defensive coordinator at Hutchinson Community College (Kan.), where he stayed for three seasons.

2010 Jackrabbit Football
COUGHLIN-ALUMNI STADIUM Coughlin-Alumni Stadium is in its 49th season as home of Jackrabbit football. In the quest to maintain it as one of the top outdoor football facilities in the Upper Midwest, Coughlin-Alumni Stadium has undergone major changes during the past decade. A new scoreboard was installed in the south end zone prior to the 2005 season. The scoreboard, which was manufactured by Brookings-based Daktronics, measures approximately 121 feet wide by 56 feet high and features a large full-color ProStar® video replay screen in the center with additional statistical and advertising panels. The football scoreboard was part of a $3 million upgrade to scoreboard display systems and signage at SDSU athletic facilities. Also in the past decade at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, lights were added, parking lots were paved, new restrooms were constructed, a new ticket booth added, and an organized tailgating area known as “The Backyard” was cleared directly north of the stadium. CAS will see other changes this fall as the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center, located in the north end zone, will house the Jackrabbit football team for the first time. With the addition of the lights during the summer of 2000, CAS also became the home of the Brookings High School Bobcats. SDSU played its first game under the lights at CAS on Sept. 1, 2001, defeating Ferris State (Mich.), 34-24. The Jackrabbits have gone on to compile an 18-5 record in night games at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. The natural-grass stadium opened Sept. 22, 1962, when the Jacks lost a 9-7 decision to Arkansas State. During its 49 years of operation, there have been 257 games against 59 different opponents at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, with SDSU holding a 158-99 record (.615 winning percentage) on its home field. Since moving to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision in 2004, the Jackrabbits have posted a 24-8 mark at CAS. That includes a 7-2 record at home against Missouri Valley Football Conference opponents. The largest crowd ever to see a football game of any kind in South Dakota came through the turnstiles on Nov. 17, 2007, when 16,345 fans watched the Jackrabbits defeat North Dakota State, 29-24, for the Great West Football Conference title. NDSU entered the game undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the FCS Coaches Poll. SDSU also set a single-season attendance record during the 2007 campaign as an average of 11,218 fans attended each of the Jackrabbits’ six home games. Four of the games drew crowds better than 10,000 and three ranked among the 10 largest crowds in stadium history. The Jackrabbits have performed well in front of large crowds, winning eight of the 10 most-attended games. The previous single-game attendance record was set on Hobo Day, Oct. 19, 1985, when 16,193 fans saw SDSU defeat the University of South Dakota 24-12. USD also was undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation at the time. The stadium project was started after Charles Coughlin, a 1909 graduate and former student-athlete, donated $50,000 towards the building of a new stadium to replace State Field. The remaining $250,000 of the original $300,000 cost was raised from alumni, students and friends of SDSU.

DYKHOUSE STUDENT-ATHLETE CENTER The newest athletic facility at South Dakota State University, the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center opened in early 2010. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center will help Jackrabbit Athletics take another step forward in its mission to produce student-athletes as Lifelong Champions. The 30,000-square-foot facility: • Houses an academic center for all SDSU student-athletes. • Serves as the home of Jackrabbit football with coaches offices, locker room, meeting rooms, a strength and conditioning center and athletic training facilities. • Provides a dedicated area to showcase the program to recruits and donors. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center is equipped with seven meeting rooms for the Jackrabbit football team to accommodate offense, defense, special teams,as well as specified position space as necessary. The home of Jackrabbit football players consists of a state-ofthe-art locker room, which is second to none in the region. It embodies everything that Jackrabbit Athletics stands for: Honor, Tradition and Excellence. Players will have the opportunity to condition and train in the 4,100-square-foot Strength & Conditioning Center, filled with the latest strength training and fitness equipment. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center was made possible through leadership gifts from the Dana and La Dawn Dykhouse family and South Dakota businessman and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford. Dana Dykhouse, president and Chief Executive Officer of First Premier Bank in Sioux Falls, is a 1979 graduate of SDSU. He lettered three years for the Jackrabbit football team, earning honorable mention all-North Central Conference honors as a defensive tackle in 1978. La Dawn Dykhouse also graduated in 1979 from SDSU, where she was a Pride of the Dakotas Dakota Deb Member. They are the parents of two children: Dan (Kristina), a 2007 alumnus and football letterwinner from 2004-06; and Alana, who graduated from Black Hills State University in the spring of 2010 after lettering four times in women’s basketball. The Chicoine Champions Room is named in recognition of the gift provided by the Jeff and Chris Chicoine family of Lake Forest, Ill. Jeff Chicoine is a 1968 agricultural economics graduate and football letterwinner. The Chicoine Champions Room will serve as a hub for football recruiting and will be transformed to a donor hospitality suite on gamedays. To date, the Dana and La Dawn Dykhouse family, T. Denny Sanford and nearly 50 other donors have given more than $6 million in support of the project. Many have accelerated their gifts to the University, which has increased the amount of the donations through interest earned.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS The South Dakota State University football team continued to gain conference and national recognition for its academic pursuits during the 2009 season. Headlining the individual award winners were juniors Kyle Minett and Conrad Kjerstad, who received recognition on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Team within the University Division. A running back from Ruthton, Minn., Minett was honored on the first team for the second consecutive year with a 3.60 grade-point average while majoring in economics. Kjerstad, a safety from Wall, earned secondteam honors with a 3.93 GPA in agricultural business. He later was named to the 12th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team. Minett and Kjerstad were joined on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team by senior offensive lineman Casey Knips and junior punter Dean Priddy. Knips, a native of Adrian, Minn., compiled a 3.69 GPA while majoring in construction management. He also was a semifinalist for the 2009 William V. Campbell Trophy, which is awarded to the college football’s top scholar-athlete. A native of Eden Prairie, Minn., Priddy is cur-
rently pursuing a master’s degree in mathematics after compiling a 3.71 GPA as an undergraduate. After leading the Missouri Valley Football Conference in team grade-point average during the 2008 season, the Jackrabbits posted a league-best 10 selection, including three firstteam honorees, on the 2009 MVFC All-Academic Team, which was announced in December. It marked the fifth consecutive season SDSU led its football conference in all-academic picks. Headlining the list of Jackrabbit honorees were running backs and repeat first-team selections Minett and Tyler Duffy. A junior running back and Brookings native, Duffy earned a spot on the first team with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average while majoring in electrical engineering. Kjerstad was the other first-team selection. SDSU’s lone representative on the second team was senior linebacker Chris Johnson, a Council Bluffs, Iowa, native who has compiled a 3.49 GPA in economics. Six other Jackrabbit players received honorable mention honors: seniors Knips and Jimmy Rogers, juniors Derek Domino, Matt Hylland and Priddy, and sophomore Brad Iverson. SDSU, coached by John Stiegelmeier, led the
Great West Football Conference in the number of academic all-conference selections from 2005 through 2007. Nominees to the 2009 Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Academic team must have been starters or key reserves with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Studentathletes must have reached sophomore academic and athletic standing at their institutions and must have completed at least one full academic year at their institution. League sports information directors voted on the team by designating 11 players for first-team honors and 11 players for second-team recognition. The league also recognized 52 Jackrabbit players following the conclusion of the 2009-10 academic year on the MVFC Honor Roll for posting a GPA of 3.0 or better while being enrolled in at least 12 hours during the fall. Of those 52 players, 25 qualified for the Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award, which requires a minimum 3.2 GPA for each of the previous two semesters and at least a sophomore in academic standing. In addition, Duffy, Knips and Priddy received the Presidents Council Academic Award, which requires a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA and within 18 hours of graduation.
It’s through cooperation and teamwork that we connect our small town strengths and resources to the global market. It’s also why we’re committed to recruiting the brightest leaders of tomorrow. To learn more, visit chsinc.com. © 2009 CHS Inc.

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Cole Brodie has quietly become a great student-athlete in the SDSU football program. He is a three-year starter at cornerback, but his impact on the program goes much farther than just his defensive play. He has always been a great special teams player, and this year he will help lead his football team as an elected captain. In the secondary, he has made a number of great plays as a veteran cornerback. It was a unique transition from Georgia to South Dakota, but Cole made the transition in a special way. Cole Brodie is a Difference Maker.” The Bum 19

BEEF BOWL HISTORY South Dakota State University is home to the original Beef Bowl. The Beef Bowl was started as SDSU’s way of recognizing those individuals and firms involved in the beef industry in South Dakota. Festivities include a pre-game barbecue with proceeds going toward scholarships in the Animal and Range Sciences Department, as well as presentation of the SDSU Friends of the Beef Industry Award. Proceeds from a live steer auction at halftime benefit Jackrabbit Athletics. More than 10,000 people have attended each of the last six Beef Bowls and nine times overall. SDSU holds a 24-19 record in the Beef Bowl, winning each of the last four contests and nine of the last 11. This year’s Beef Bowl is the 44th annual event. Since 1977, the media covering the event has voted on the game’s outstanding player. 1967: 1968: 1969: 1970: 1971: 1972: 1973: 1974: 1975: 1976: 1977:

BEEF BOWL HONOREES South Dakota State University has named WNAX Radio of Yankton, S.D. as the 2010 SDSU Friend of the Beef Industry. This annual award will be presented at tonight’s Beef Bowl football game by Dr. David Chicoine, president of South Dakota State University, and Dr. Barry Dunn, the Dean of the College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences. In 1922, WNAX signed on the air and shortly after was purchased by the Gurney family. The station became the on-air home of Gurney Seeds, and continued to find new ways to connect with rural listeners. For nearly 90 years, WNAX has been a trusted source of information and entertainment for rural families. Generations of beef producers have trusted WNAX market information and the latest farm news. The WNAX farm department consistently attracts the largest listening audience in the region, maintaining a generations long reputation as the voice of agriculture. In addition to its on-going commitment to agriculture, the station has launched the careers of numerous entertainers. Starting in the late 1920s, Lawrence Welk spent nearly a decade performing live for listeners, and based his traveling band, the “Hotsy Totsy Boys” out of Yankton. Today, WNAX continues its tradition of service to the region as the flagship station of South

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Derek Domino has worked tremendously hard to become the great player he has. He has done it in the weight room, the classroom, the film room and many times on the game field. Through his hard work, he has earned the respect of our opponents and has been named to a number of honor teams. I am convinced that honors mean very little to Derek, but success on the field and playing with his team, mean the world. Derek Domino has dedicated five years to Make A Difference for the Jacks.”

ABOUT WESTERN ILLINOIS
Head Coach Mark Hendrickson After serving as acting head coach for parts of the 2008 and 2009 seasons, Mark Hendrickson is in his first full season in charge of the Western Illinois University football program. Hendrickson previously spent 11 years as offensive coordinator for the Fighting Leathernecks, while also serving as assistant head coach for 10 of those seasons under head coach Don Patterson. While Patterson attended to medical issues, Hendrickson led WIU to a 5-2 record and a No. 12 national ranking through the first seven games of the 2008 season. He also directed an injury-plagued Fighting Leatherneck squad for the final eight games of the 2009 campaign before officially taking over as head coach in December 2009. During his tenure, Western has advanced to the FCS playoffs on three occasions and won the Missouri Valley Conference championship in 2000 and 2002. Hendrickson began his collegiate coaching career in 1983 as an assistant at Georgia Tech under coach Bill Curry. He worked with the running backs and wide receivers from 1983-86. From 1987-89 he worked as the assistant line coach and special teams coordinator under coach Bobby Ross. During his final two years in Atlanta (1990-91) he served as tight ends coach and again coordinated all special teams play. Hendrickson earned a National Championship ring in 1990 with the Yellow Jackets. He moved back to his native Iowa in 1992, working for a season at the University of Iowa under another Hall of Fame coach, Hayden Fry. Following a one-year stint at Southeast Missouri State as the offensive coordinator, Hendrickson returned to Iowa City, where he held the title of special teams coordinator. During his time between the Yellow Jackets and Hawkeyes, Hendrickson coached in six bowl games — including the 1991 Florida Citrus Bowl which Tech won to clinch the National Championship. Hendrickson went 5-1 in his bowl appearances, including wins in the: All-American (1985), Florida Citrus (1991), Aloha (1991), Sun (1995) and Alamo (1996) Bowl games. Originally from Richland, Iowa, Hendrickson attended Pekin (Iowa) High School and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with honors in 1980. A four-year letterwinner at wide receiver for the Panthers, Hendrickson earned his master's degree from UNI in 1982.
What a difference a year makes for the Western Illinois football program. After suffering through a one-win season in 2009, including a last-place finish in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, the Fighting Leathernecks have positioned themselves for one of the most dramatic turnarounds in all of college football this season. WIU enters tonight’s game with a 4-1 overall record and is tied atop the MVFC with a 2-0 league mark. The Leathernecks’ only loss this season came on Sept. 11 at Purdue, 31-21. Matt Barr leads the conference in pass efficiency with a rating of 136.13, throwing eight touchdowns against only one interception. Overall, Barr has completed 56.6 percent (73of-129) of his passes for 931 yards. The senior signal-caller is a dual threat as he has run for another 251 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per carry, with a touchdown. Ten different receivers have caught passes for the Leathernecks, led by Terriun Crump with 19 receptions for 261 yards and a touchdown. Lito Senatus has tallied 15 receptions for 208 yards and a team-high four touch-

downs. Todd Speight has added eight catches for 112 yards and is one of the top return specialists in the league, averaging 19.7 yards on kickoff returns and 11.8 yards per punt return. Freshman Bryce Flowers is on his way to joining a long list of recent 1,000-yard rushers for Western Illinois. Through five games, Flowers has compiled 534 yards and seven touchdowns, while averaging 6.4 yards per carry. His average of 106.8 yards per game ranks 15th nationally. Caulton Ray, who has started all five games, has totaled 449 yards so far this season to give the Leathernecks a potent 1-2 rushing attack — one that ranks third among FCS squads with an average of 274.2 yards per game. The offensive line is anchored by senior right guard Gary Sumlin and senior right tackle Mike Lamphear. Juniors Jordan Valle at center and left tackle Enock Presendieu are joined in the starting lineup by sophomore left guard Max Dancer. When the offense has stalled, punter Chris Fuchs has proven to be another weapon. The senior is averaging 37.5 yards per attempt and
has landed 13 of his 28 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Overall, WIU ranks sixth in the Football Championship Subdivision by scoring an average of 38 points per game, and also stands fourth in scoring defense by allowing only 13.6 points per contest. The defense is spearheaded by an active group of linebackers led by Kyle Glazier. A senior, Glazier has been credited with a teambest 45 tackles this season, including 5.5 tackles for loss with two sacks. Fellow linebacker Brandon Kreczmer has posted 31 tackles, with 3.5 TFLs and 1.5 sacks, along with an interception. Defensive end Mike Stieren leads the team with 3.5 sacks among his 17 tackles. In the secondary, sophomore Tyler West has been the top playmaker, registering 25 tackles with an interception and pass breakup. As a team, the Leathernecks are plus-eight in turnover margin. WIU has forced 11 turnovers — eight fumbles and three interceptions — while committing only three turnovers.

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Brian Fischer has slowly and methodically, with a ton of hard work, become an excellent interior defensive lineman for our football team. He has done it without saying a word as he is a very quiet individual. However, he is not quiet on the field as he talks with his pads and effort. “Fish” has been a great addition to our program and I expect him to continue to Make A Difference in this environment and wherever he ends up after graduation.”

Theatre puts ‘fun’ into funeral preparation Four SDSU officials have literally landed a part to die for in State University Theatre’s opening production — “Dearly Departed.” The comedy tells the story of southerner Bud Turpin, who keels over at the breakfast table in the opening scene. A different actor plays Bud’s part at each performance, which runs Oct. 13-17 at Doner Auditorium on the South Dakota State University campus. Landing the mortal role on opening night Wednesday is Ray Peterson, director of SDSU Theatre. Peterson is followed by Stuart Melby, a community actor and owner of Melby Photography (Oct. 14); Brett Monson, president of the Students’ Association (Oct. 15); Jerry Jorgensen, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences (Oct. 16); and Chris Guyotte, director of the production (Oct. 17). Their role is a simple one — drop dead before having grits and gravy. There are no lines to memorize. The humor comes from Turpin’s dysfunctional family, whose problems take center stage when they try to pull matters together for the funeral. First-born Ray-Bud (played by Nate Walz) drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount. Bud’s younger son, Junior (played by Jake Windish) is juggling financial ruin, monster kids, and his own infidelity. Their spinster sister, Delightful, (played by Ben Rodman) copes with death as she does with life by devouring junk food. Others in the oddball cast of characters include Annamarie Trevvett as Bud’s wife, Raynelle, and Elizabeth Earl as Ray-Bud’s wife Lucille. Marguerite, (played by Rebeca Bailey) is the Bible-quoting, selfrighteous sister of the deceased. She is partnered with her worthless, unemployed son, Royce, portrayed by Michael Heuer. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the fu“DEARLY DEPARTED” cast members include, clockwise from upper left, Jake neral. “Dearly Departed” contains a minimum of maWindish as Junior, Nate Walz as Ray-Bud, Annamarie Trevvett as Raynelle, and Ben ture language and situations and is not recommended Rodman as Delightful.

Heading into the start of the 2010 football season, six former South Dakota State standouts were in training camps of National Football League teams, continuing the Jackrabbits’ long tradition of developing players into pro prospects. Headlining the list was Adam Vinatieri of the Indianapolis Colts. Vinatieri has earned a reputation as one the most consistent and clutch kickers in the NFL. After two Pro Bowl selections (2002, 2004), he left New England following the 2005 season as the team’s career scoring leader. Vinatieri’s career totals include 338-of-412 on field goal attempts, 82 percent, and 1,530 career points. He holds the second-longest streak of consecutive 100-point seasons to start a career in NFL history with 13 — a streak that ended during an injury-plagued 2009 campaign. Vinatieri also has excelled in the postseason. He holds the distinction of being the only kicker in NFL history to play in five different Super Bowl games, and made a field goal four of those games. He kicked last-second game-winning field goals in Super Bowl XXXVI against St. Louis and Super Bowl XXXVIII versus Carolina, as well as a game-tying 45-yard field goal in a snowstorm against Oakland in the 2001 AFC Playoffs. His career postseason totals include 42-of-51 on field goals and a perfect 51-of-51 on extra points. Vinatieri’s field goal totals are NFL postseason records, as are his 177 points. Vinatieri began his professional career with the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe before signing with the New England Patriots in 1996. Four members of SDSU’s 2009 Football Championship Subdivision playoff team competed for NFL roster spots this summer, including defenisve standout Danny Batten. Batten became the first Jackrabbit player in 11 years to be taken in the NFL Draft, when he was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round. A defensive end in college, Batten was moved to linebacker at the professional level, but will miss the 2010 season after suffering an injury. Three other Jackrabbit standouts signed free-agent contracts following the 2010 draft. Offensive linemen Casey Bender and Casey Knips agreed to

terms with the Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals, respecively, while linebacker Chris Johnson originally received a tryout with the Chicago Bears before signing with the Arizona Cardinals. In addition, Mitch Erickson spent training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, after spending the 2008 and 2009 season on the practice squad for the Denver Broncos. Another former Jackrabbit kicker, Parker Douglass, is playing professionally with the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League. Douglass kicked for the California Redwoods in 2009.

There are many ways to be involved with athletic teams, but we must always be mindful to do so within the University, conference, and NCAA rules and regulations. To this end, the athletic department compliance program is designed to: • Create a culture of compliance among all constituents of the athletic program, including student-athletes, coaches, staff, and fans, in keeping with NCAA, conference and institutional rules and regulations. • Monitor all aspects of the athletic program to ensure compliance; identify and report all instances in which compliance has not been achieved; and affirm that appropriate corrective actions are taken, and • Educate all constituents about applicable NCAA, conference and institutional rules. It is our utmost goal to strive for athletic excellence, which can be achieved with ethical conduct and integrity. We are grateful for your loyal and continuing support, and rely upon you to partner with us creating a championship environment for all our athletic teams.

The past four seasons have dealt great change to the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Within that span, the league has lost a member, gained two members and changed its name. Despite those developments, a quality nationally competitive product has been a constant for the league, which celebrated its Silver Anniversary in 2009. The Missouri Valley Football Conference enters its 26th year of existence this fall and has proven to be one of the nation’s premier NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues. There’s not much that has eluded the conference in its first 25 years of existence. The league’s first two-plus decades have included national championships, national players of the year, national coaches of the year, No. 1 national rankings, and countless All-Americans. Strong coaching and great players have helped make the league a national force, but the stability and leadership of Commissioner Patty Viverito -- the only commissioner the league has ever known -- has helped make the Missouri Valley Football Conference a standard bearer on the FCS scene. Indeed, all signs point to continued national prominence for the Missouri Valley Football Conference as it enters its 26th season in 2010. In June 2008, presidents of the nine-member Gateway Football Conference and the 10-member Missouri Valley Conference approved a rebranding initiative that changed the football conference name from the Gateway Football Conference to the Missouri Valley Football Conference. It represented the second name change for the football league. Initially, the conference competed as the Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference (1985-91) and the Gateway Football Conference (1992-2007). Although the league shares the Missouri Valley name, the football-playing members compete under a separate administrative umbrella, as the Missouri Valley Conference and the Missouri Valley Football Conference will remain separate entities. While the 2009 season didn’t produce a national championship, it was a successful one, as Southern Illinois and South Dakota State represented the conference in the playoffs, marking the 15th-straight season in which at least two teams have participated in post-season play. For three-straight weeks to close out the regular season, Southern Illinois enjoyed the No. 1 national ranking, while RB Deji Karim of Southern Illinois and DE Danny Batten of South Dakota State were finalists in the Walter Payton Award and Buck Buchanan voting, respectively, with each finishing third. The Missouri Valley Football Conference has two recent national championships (Western
Kentucky - 2002; Youngstown State - 1997), and league members Youngstown State (3) and Southern Illinois (1) own additional titles prior to their league membership, meaning six FCS championship trophies are housed on league campuses, in addition to three (Youngstown State twice and UNI in 2005) runner-up finishes. Only five FCS leagues possess more than a single FCS championship trophy, and the Missouri Valley Football Conference is among that elite. In recent years, the league has established itself as a leader among FCS conferences. During the past 13 years, the league has two national championships and eight other semifinal trips. The league’s 36-27 playoff mark in that span is third-best among all FCS leagues, and the conference has had four teams reach the title game since 1997. The Missouri Valley Football Conference success is not limited to the immediate past. During the decade of the 1990’s, current members of the league compiled a 34-19 mark in the FCS playoffs, bettered only by the Southern Conference, whose members were 37-19 in that decade. Team accomplishments have helped solidify the Missouri Valley Football Conference as an FCS elite, but individuals at the league’s member institutions are the real source of pride within the conference. Thanks to great players and strong coaching, the Missouri Valley Football Conference has reached and will maintain its place among the FCS best. Last year, despite tough scheduling, six teams in the conference had winning records, marking the first time that’s ever happened in the 25-year history of the league. The Missouri Valley Football Conference has had four teams (or more) with better than .500 records in the same season 16 times now, including the past 12 seasons. In 1997, Youngstown State grabbed the crowned jewel for the conference, as the league had one of its most successful seasons. In addition to claiming the league’s first national championship, the Penguins finished the year ranked No. 1, marking the first time a league member has held that spot in a season-ending poll. That year, Western Illinois was at No. 6, marking the first time the league ended the year with two teams ranked among the top six. In 1999, the Missouri Valley Football Conference trumped that, as Youngstown State finished the year No. 2 and Illinois State was No. 3. UNI also finished in the top 20 in both nationally recognized polls. In 2002, Western Kentucky added to the league’s national championship trophy case with an FCS crown, while both WKU (No. 1) and Western Illinois (No. 5) finished among the nation’s top five in the season-ending polls. The Hilltoppers became the first school to earn

MISSOURI VALLEY FOOTBALL CONFERENCE victories against the tourney’s top three seeds en route to their national championship. In 2003, four Valley teams represented the league in the 16-team NCAA playoffs, marking the first time any league has sent that many to the playoffs in the same year. In 2004, Southern Illinois spent a leaguerecord 11 weeks as the nation’s top-ranked team, while all eight league teams received votes for the Top 25 at some point in the season. Linebacker Boomer Grigsby of Illinois State earned a National Defensive Player of the Year honor, while SIU’s Jerry Kill was National Coach of the Year. In 2005, UNI became the fourth league school to reach the FCS championship game since 1997, while Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky combined to hold the nation’s No. 1 ranking in the top-25 polls for five weeks. In 2006, Youngstown State won its secondstraight league championship and the Penguins were joined in the playoff field by Illinois State and Southern Illinois. That marked only the second time in league history the league had more than two teams qualify for the 16-team playoff field. SIU’s Arkee Whitlock was a national player of the year award winner (College Sporting News) and was third in the Walter Payton Award balloting. In 2008, six teams were nationally ranked in the same poll, marking the first time in league history that had happened. Those six teams were ranked for four consecutive weeks. North Dakota State held the nation’s No. 1 spot for its first two weeks as a conference member, while rookie coach Dale Lennon of Southern Illinois became just the third mentor to win Coach of the Year honors in his first league season. The original Gateway Conference was founded as a women’s athletic organization in August 1982, following the dissolution of the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. In September of that year, Patty Viverito was named the first commissioner of the newly founded conference, a position she maintains today. Before moving to its permanent headquarters in St. Louis, the conference spent three organizational months on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. In July of 1992, the 10-team conference disbanded as its women’s programs realigned with their men’s teams in their respective conferences. The league assumed its new name on July 1, 1992, becoming the Gateway Football Conference, an NCAA FCS football league comprised of seven Midwest institutions. The Gateway Conference football division was born on August 21, 1985, when the Gate-
SOUTH DAKOTA STATE officially opened the Missouri Valley Football Conference era by defeating Youngstown State, 40-7, on Sept. 6, 2008, at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. The Jackrabbits ended their inaugural season in the MVFC with a 6-2 league record. way Conference President’s Council voted to add a FCS football division for six of its members to the previously all-women’s athletics organization. Founding members of the football division were Eastern Illinois, Illinois State, UNI, Southern Illinois, Southwest Missouri State (now Missouri State) and Western Illinois. The creation of the football division marked the first time in college annals that football was added to a women’s conference. In June of 1986, Indiana State became the seventh member of the conference. In the 25 years of the football division, league membership has been stable -- with only five fluctuations since 1986 Eastern Illinois left the league to join the Ohio Valley Conference in 1996, while Youngstown State joined the conference in 1997 to return league membership to its original seven-member status. League membership reached what was then an all-time high of eight members for the start of the 2001 season with the addition of Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers left the league after six years to join the Sun Belt (FBS) North Dakota State and South Dakota State joined for the start of the 2008 season, giving the league nine members for the first time. The Missouri Valley Football Conference is among 10 FCS conferences that receive automatic bids to the NCAA FCS Championship. The conference has had an automatic bid since 1986, as the FCS Football Committee waived the league’s two-year waiting period and granted the league an automatic bid after just one year. The Missouri Valley Football Conference is the only automatic FCS qualifying conference that sponsors football as its only sport, as the league completed its service to women’s athlet-
ics following the 1991-92 season. Although the league no longer sponsors women’s sports, the league has an historical place in the development of intercollegiate women’s athletics. The 10 founders of the original Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference currently belong to three conferences. Eight members joined their men’s programs in the Missouri Valley: Bradley, Drake, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, UNI, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Eastern Illinois is now in the Ohio Valley Conference, while Western Illinois competes in The Summit League. Members of the Missouri Valley Football Conference (and initial year of membership) include: Illinois State University (1985), Indiana State University (1986), Missouri State University (1985), North Dakota State University (2008), the University of Northern Iowa (1985), South Dakota State University (2008), Southern Illinois University (1985), Western Illinois University (1985), and Youngstown State University (1997). Five Missouri Valley Football Conference members also compete in the Missouri Valley Conference (Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, and Southern Illinois). Three league schools compete in The Summit League (North Dakota State, South Dakota State, and Western Illinois), while Youngstown State competes in the Horizon League for its other sports. In its decade of operation, the Gateway sponsored championships in 10 women’s sports and football. The women’s sports were basketball, cross country, golf, indoor and outdoor track & field, swimming and diving, tennis, softball, volleyball and, early on, field hockey.

MVFC NOTES, STANDINGS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jermaine Saffold, 6-1, 205, Jr., WR, Missouri State (Grandview, Mo.). Saffold recorded career highs with nine receptions and 114 receiving yards to help guide the Bears past No. 20 Youngstown State on Oct. 2. Saffold’s 43yard reception from Cody Kirby with 3:33 to go in the game put the victory on ice as he notched his third touchdown in four games. His nine receptions were the most by a Bear this season. DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Andre Martin, 6-1, 203, So., DB, Northern Iowa (St. Louis, Mo.). Martin came up with two interceptions and forced a fumble in UNI’s 24-14 win over South Dakota State. Martin’s first pick came late in the fist half. With SDSU threatening to score at the UNI 7, Martin intercepted the ball in the endzone to send UNI into the break with a 7-0 lead. Martin’s second pick came in the third quarter with the Panthers protecting a 14-7 lead. Martin also finished the game with eight tackles. SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Luke Thuston, 5-11, 185, R-Fr., S, Southern Illinois (Wildwood, Mo.).

Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Endowment The opportunity to provide a gift to South Dakota State University athletics in your name or in the name of a loved one will truly make a difference in the lives of Jackrabbit student-athletes for years to come. Endowments help ensure the long-term sustainability of Jackrabbit Athletics and its programs. A pledge of $20,000 is needed to start an endowment. Payments may be structured toward the endowment a number of different ways. Once the fund reaches the $20,000 mark, distributions from the fund are used to support scholarships for student-athletes of South Dakota State University. For more information on giving opportunities, contact Mike Burgers, Associate Athletic Director for Development at (605) 697-7475 or by email at: email@example.com. The Bum 57
