FRISCO, T.X. (WNAX) — The South Dakota State Jackrabbits came up two points and sixteen seconds short of a national championship, losing to Sam Houston 23 to 21 in Frisco Texas Sunday.

Stiegelmeier had a message for his team at the end:

The Jacks end the spring season with a record of eight and two. They return this fall with the opening set at Colorado State on September fourth.
