RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - South Dakota football defeated Lamar on Saturday 35-6. Following last week’s game, head coach Bob Nielson said he wished his team would initiate more of a run game, this week, his team answered. Travis Theis and Nate Thomas combined for 284 yards and four touchdowns.

“I was a little bit surprised when you average eight yards a carry, two times when they knew we were running the football,” Nielson said. “That’s a really good job up front, that’s a really good job by our ball carriers breaking tackles, getting extra yards after contact.”
