Charlie Coyote is ready, and the Dakota Dome in Vermilion will be rockin for Dakota Days.

Falling last week to Missouri State in the conference opener, the USD Coyotes (2-2) will play Indiana State (2-2) before the deafening Dakota Dome Dakota Days crowd on Saturday at 1:00 PM. This will mark the 104th homecoming game for South Dakota. Sad news from head coach Bob Nielson this week finds Shomari Lawrence out for the season after sustaining an injury.

Just this week, it was announced that South Dakota fifth-year senior linebacker Jack Cochrane is one of 176 semifinalists for the 2021 William V.
