Southern Illinois vs South Dakota State Preview

Southern Illinois will hope this meeting with South Dakota State goes better than their first — a 44-3 loss back on March 20.

It was 306 rushing yards that helped propel the Jackrabbits to the victory, led by Isaiah Davis. SIU managed just 213 yards of total offense.

“We know what we’re up against,” SIU coach Nick Hill said. “Look, they beat us 44-3. There’s not much more to say about that. There’s no excuses for that. Until we go out there and do something different about it, you are what the score says you are. That’s the mentality we’ll have. We’ve got to go out and earn their respect.”

Outside of a loss to North Dakota, South Dakota State has had a strong showing this season, going 6-1 with some very lopsided victories. The Jackrabbits’ latest win came against Holy Cross, 31-3.

“Expecting excellence, expecting to win, is great, and our guys will work towards that goal,” said coach John Stiegelmeier. “We will spend some time talking about how good we can play, not who we’re playing. We’ll focus on that and our guys will embrace that.”

Quarterback Mark Gronowski was just 12-21 for 153 yards but found the end zone three times with passes. A strong run game helped set up the pass, with South Dakota State rushing for 281 yards as a team — 156 of those from Davis.

The Jackrabbits are excited for the Sunday night lights and being on a nationally broadcast.

“I think it’s super,” Stiegelmeier said. “It’s like having Gameday. It’s pretty good advertising for our program but it’s also great for our university. To be able to see South Dakota State and be able to watch us nationwide, there’s no doubt this is a positive. And our guys love playing night games. They’ll play anytime under the lights.”

Hill had a similar sentiment.

“If they tell us to play at midnight, we’ll be ready to play,” SIU coach Nick Hill said. “You’re on the road, it’s the quarterfinals and you’re playing on national TV. I’m happy that all of Saluki nation across the country will get to watch and be excited and proud that the Saluki logo will be all over national television. I’m excited for that.”

South Dakota State is a hefty 14.5-point favorite for the matchup. The total is set at 54.5.
