S. Dakota State erupts in big-play 2nd half to rally past Indiana State 32-17


TERRE HAUTE, Indiana — Zach Zenner's 94-yard touchdown run and Jake Wieneke's 91-yard catch were highlights as South Dakota State erupted for 25 points after halftime to defeat Indiana State 32-17 on Saturday.

Trailing by two points, Austin Sumner and Wieneke connected on a slant pass that went for 91 yards and the lead after halftime, tying the longest pass play in school history.

Sumner passed for 298 yards and two TDs for South Dakota State (6-4, 3-3 Missouri Valley). Zenner finished with 193 yards, Wieneke with 172 and each scored twice.

In the fourth quarter, Justin Syrovatka matched a season-long with a 46-yard field goal and Sumner found Wieneke on a 31-yard scoring pass as the Jackrabbits scored 17 points about eight minutes.

Indiana State (6-4, 3-3) led 9-7 at halftime when Conlan Cassidy blocked a punt for a safety and Buck Logan followed with a 3-yard TD run on the ensuing drive.
