VERMILLION, S.D.—The South Dakota Coyotes earned their most lopsided win in the South Dakota Showdown Series presented by South Dakota Corn. The Coyotes topped the South Dakota State Jackrabbits 14.5-6.5 to bring the trophy back to Vermillion for the third time in the last four years. South Dakota Corn Utilization officials made the official announcement Thursday during a virtual press conference. The South Dakota Showdown Series is a point-based athletic and academic competition between the two in-state university rivals. The Series also aims to raise awareness, funds and donations for Feeding South Dakota, a statewide not-for-profit with the goal of eliminating hunger in South Dakota. South Dakota won 10 of 13 athletic competitions with South Dakota State and split a point with a tie in women’s soccer. Head-to-head competitions and Summit League Championship finishes in 11 sports factored into the scoring.
