SDSU FOOTBALL…J’Bore Gibbs threw for a touchdown and ran for two more and South Dakota State beat Youngstown State 38-28 on Saturday night in a battle between two of the top teams in the Football Championship Subdivision.

   Gibbs completed 14 of 26 passes for 210 yards and had 12 carries for 75 yards for South Dakota State, which went into the game ranked No. 3 in the FCS Coaches poll.

   Nathan Mays hit Joe Alessi for a 45-yard touchdown to give No. 17 Youngstown State (4-2, 0-2 Missouri Valley Conference) a 21-9 lead midway through the third quarter but the Jackrabbits answered with a 13-play, 75-yard drive capped by Gibbs’ 2-yard TD run. South Dakota State forced the Penguins to punt on their next possession then Gibbs connected with Cade Johnson on an 81-yard touchdown catch-and-run. Johnson, on a reverse-pass, found Blake Kunz in the end zone for the 2-point conversion to give the Jackrabbits (5-1, 2-0) their first lead at 24-21 early in the fourth quarter.

About a minute later, DyShawn Gales picked off a pass from Mays at the Youngstown State 44 and C.J. Wilson’s 13-yard scoring run made it 31-21 with 6:13 to play.

   South Dakota State linebacker Seven Wilson, who collided head-to-head with teammate Christian Rozeboom in the final seconds, was down on the field for several minutes before walking off the field under his own power.


GIBBS-MVFC…South Dakota State quarterback J’Bore Gibbs was honored Sunday as both Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player and Newcomer of the Week after helping engineer a comeback victory at Youngstown State. 

   Gibbs rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another as the third-ranked Jackrabbits rallied from a 21-9 deficit late in the third quarter for a 38-28 victory. Gibbs’ first touchdown run was from 2 yards out, while his 63-yard score in the final minute sealed the victory. His touchdown pass covered 81 yards to Cade Johnson and gave the Jackrabbits a 22-21 lead.

   Gibbs finished the night 14-of-26 passing for 210 yards and also was the team’s leading rusher with 75 yards on 12 carries.

   The Jackrabbits return seven all-Summit performers from a year ago.

   SDSU is slated to open the season with a three-game series Feb. 14-16 at defending Missouri Valley Conference regular season champion Dallas Baptist.
