South Dakota State comes to Lincoln with a 3-0 record and No. 6 national ranking in the FCS Top 25 following its 34-26 victory Saturday night over Southeastern Louisiana in Brookings, S.D.

A record crowd of 13,456 saw the Jackrabbits come back after they trailed 10-0 in the first quarter and 19-7 early in the second half.

Junior running back Zach Zenner, a candidate for the Walter Payton Award, had a 75-yard touchdown run to begin the comeback. A week earlier, in a road victory over North Dakota, Zenner tied his school record with 295 rushing yards.

The Jackrabbits led 20-19 when they scored two touchdowns in a 2 minute, 23 second span to assume control. Zenner had a 10-yard touchdown run, and linebacker Dallas Brown returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown for a 34-19 lead in the fourth quarter.

South Dakota State allowed 506 total yards, including 322 through the air.

A week after playing at Nebraska, the Jackrabbits will host two-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State in a key Missouri Valley Conference showdown.
