SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Zach Zenner scored on a 2-yard run in the second overtime, and South Dakota State spoiled Missouri State's homecoming with a 43-36 win Saturday.
Austin Sumner threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns, including a 25-yarder to Dale Moss to keep the Jackrabbits (3-6, 2-4 Missouri Valley) alive in the first overtime. MSU had gone ahead on a 1-yard TD run by Trevor Wooden, who also threw four touchdown passes.
Austin Witmer was wide right on a potentially game-winning 32-yard field goal with 1:13 left in regulation for the Bears (1-8, 1-5). They couldn't get a first down after Zenner's score and remained winless against South Dakota State, which joined the MVFC in 2008.
