FARGO, S.D. (GoWatertown.net) — After a miracle hail mary pass to claim victory over their rival South Dakota State, South Dakota (7-3) will play for a share of the Missouri Valley Conference title this week as the Coyotes travel to North Dakota State (9-1).

The 2021 spring game in Vermillion was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols. NDSU rolled to a 49-14 home win over South Dakota in the teams’ last meeting in November of 2019. Coach Nielson talks about how the Yotes are preparing for the noise of the Fargodome:
North Dakota State Coach Matt Entz says Coach Nielson has his team believing:

Kickoff 2:30 p.m. Saturday and can be heard in the Watertown area on 1480 KSDR.
