FARGO — No. 2-ranked South Dakota State held top-ranked North Dakota State scoreless in the second half to rally for a 23-21 victory Saturday in Missouri Valley Football Conference play before a sellout Fargodome crowd.

The Bison (5-2, 3-1 MVFC) have lost three consecutive Dakota Marker games against the Jackrabbits.

NDSU built a 21-7 halftime lead, but didn't score in the final two quarters. SDSU kicker Hunter Dustman made an 18-yard field goal for a 23-21 lead with 3 minutes, 49 seconds to play in the fourth quarter. The Jackrabbits scored 16 unanswered points in the second half before 18,603 fans.

WDAY's Dom Izzo and Forum reporters Jeff Kolpack and Mike McFeely broke down NDSU's home loss to SDSU.
