Farina's pick-6 caps South Dakota State's come-from-behind, 30-23 victory over South Dakota


VERMILLION, South Dakota — Nick Farina scored on a 43-yard interception return to cap South Dakota State's 30-23 come-from-behind victory over South Dakota on Saturday.

Kyle Paris had two touchdown runs, and Taryn Christion ran for another to lead the Jackrabbits (8-2, 5-2 Missouri Valley Conference).

Ryan Saeger threw a 40-yard scoring strike to Brandt Van Roekel, and ran for a 1-yard touchdown. Miles Bergner kicked two 45-yard field goals, and a 50-yarder for South Dakota (5-5, 3-4).

The Coyotes led 20-10 in the third quarter. Paris then scored twice from the 2, and Farina picked off a Saeger pass and scored to give the Jackrabbits a 30-20 lead. Bergner kicked his second 45-yarder to pull the Coyotes to 30-23.

Brady Hale's 50-yard punt pinned the Coyotes on their own 8 with two minutes left. The Coyotes drove to the Jackrabbit 43 before Saeger's pass was knocked down near the end zone to end it.
