VERMILLION, S.D. (GoYotes.com) — After last weeks game against North Dakota State was cancelled due to COVID-19 protocols with the Bison, South Dakota will face Northern Iowa this Friday at the Dakotadome.

The Coyotes won’t have to leave the state of South Dakota the rest of the spring slate. In addition to being home in two of their final three games, the Coyotes’ lone remaining road trip is to South Dakota State.

Coyote true freshman Carson Camp is the Valley’s second-leading passer through four games. He threw for a season-high 339 yards in his DakotaDome debut against Missouri State. His last game against Youngstown State was his first without tossing a touchdown.

USD’s true freshman at cornerback, Myles Harden, has been fantastic through four games. He picked off two passes in his collegiate debut at Illinois State.  He has seven pass breakups and ranks fifth nationally in passes defended.

USD’s last win in the series was a 28-25 victory inside the DakotaDome in 2016.  Catch the game Friday night with a 6 p.m. kick on The Talk of Watertown, 1480 KSDR with the Coyote Sports Network.  John Thayer, Gary Culver, and Carter Woodiel will have coverage.
