South Dakota State enters as the fourth-ranked team in the FCS. The three key players to watch on the Jackrabbits are quarterback Taryn Christion, tight end Dallas Goedert and wide receiver Jake Weineke.
Earlier this week, MSU head coach Jeff Choate said Goedert and Weineke are potential NFL talents.
Missed 33-yard FG attempt wastes a good drive from the Bobcats. This isn't a game MSU can afford to give away points.
Tucker Yates and Grant Collins smother SDSU's running back on the Jackrabbits' opening offensive play. MSU looks good through the first five minutes.
JoJo Henderson gets into a quick shoving match with SDSU WR Cade Johnson after a first down for the Jacks. MSU's secondary has a tall task tonight.
Montana State goes three and out on its second possession. After an encouraging first drive, MSU gives up the ball. SDSU will take over at its own 40-yard line.
MSU had four first downs on its first possession. For some perspective, the Cats had seven in the entire game against Washington State last week.
