SDSU DIVER HONORED…Clark Kocourek has been named the Summit League's Diver of the Week.

Kocourek swept the boards as South Dakota State downed South Dakota, 161-81 Friday night. Kocourek's three-meter dive of 319.80 was the second-best in the league this season and just missed the NCAA Zone cut. The Omaha, Neb., native also won the one-meter dive with a mark of 274.72.

This is the second consecutive week that SDSU has won the award, as Connor Florand garnered the award last week.

NDSU LOSES OLSON… North Dakota State senior linebacker Grant Olson likely is done for the season after suffering a torn ligament in his left knee.

Bison coach Craig Bohl made the announcement during his weekly news conference. He says Olson's college career likely is over for the Bison, the top-ranked team in the Championship Subdivision.

Olson suffered the torn ACL in the second half of NDSU's 28-10 win over Illinois State on Saturday.

Olson has been the leading tackler the past two seasons for the Bison, who are seeking a third consecutive FCS title.
