BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - A 123-year-old quest for South Dakota football dominance resumes Saturday when South Dakota takes the field against South Dakota State for the first time in nine years.
A series that began when the schools played to a 6-6 tie during their first matchup in 1889 was interrupted when SDSU moved up to Division I in 2003.
The USD Coyotes have since gained the same classification and joined the Jackrabbits in the Missouri Valley Football Conference this season.
USD revived the rivalry last fall by erecting a billboard along Interstate 29 in Brookings showing a coyote running down a jackrabbit with the headline, ``Have an old friend for dinner.'' Within a month, Brookings police had to remove a dead coyote found hanging from the billboard.
