South Dakota State sinks Youngstown State 35-28Saturday, Oct 8, 2011
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP)—Austin Sumner threw two of his four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, including a 73-yarder to Aaron Rollin with 5:55 left, rallying South Dakota State to a 35-28 win over Youngstown State on Saturday.
The Jackrabbits (2-4, 1-2 Missouri Valley Conference) trailed by a touchdown after three quarters, but that’s when Sumner stepped up.
He threw a 5-yard TD to Rollin to knot the score at 28-28 with 12:36 to play, and then connected with him again on the game-winner.
The Penguins (2-3, 1-2) drove to the South Dakota State 17-yard line on their final possession, but turned the ball over on downs with four straight incompletions by quarterback Kurt Hess.
Sumner threw for 345 yards with an interception, and Rollin finished with 155 receiving yards and two TDs for the Jackrabbits.
Hess passed for 243 yards with two TDs and two interceptions for the Penguins.
