Taryn Christion takes off again on third and 3 and gets the first down, barely. He's taken off several times already. That's something that MSU head coach Jeff Choate mentioned earlier this week. Thus, the Cats know it's coming but still can't stop it.
Vander is a valuable weapon for this MSU offense. The Cats have a mix of players at running back and with an offensive system that features multiple backs in at once, depth there is important.
SDSU's Kellen Soulek is down on the field after a Chris Murray draw for a gain of 5. Just 10 seconds into the second quarter.
Chris Murray is 4-for-9 so far. He completed five passes the entire game last week.
Christion has 34 rushing yards and all his runs have seemingly come at opportune times. MSU can't quite contain him.
SDSU has driven about 70 yards on this drive. Now inside MSU's 10.
Taryn Christion has eight of SDSU's 14 rushing attempts so far. He's been impressive when he's taken off and ran.
South Dakota State has outgained MSU 185-61 so far midway through the second quarter. Outside of the Cats' first drive, it's been tough sledding on offense.
That's the second time MSU had a successful drive and came away without any points.
