Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Jamaine Cook rushed for a season-high 203 yards and a touchdown and Youngstown State held on to defeat South Dakota 13-10 Saturday.

The Penguins (5-4, 2-4 Missouri Valley Conference) led 13-0 after Cook's 1-yard run with 10:28 left in the third quarter.

The Coyotes (1-8, 0-6), who had only 88 yards total offense in the first half, finally scored on Kevin Robb's 37-yard field goal later in the period, then on Jasper Sanders' 22-yard run with 10:13 remaining.

Youngstown State's defense thwarted the final Coyotes threat with 1:16 left when Aronde Stanton and Josh Fenderson sacked Josh Vander Maten on fourth & 11 from the South Dakota 41.

Cook's 42 rushing attempts were the fourth-highest single-game total in school history. He surpassed 1,000 yards for the third straight season.

Kurt Hess tied Youngstown State's career passing touchdowns record of 51 with his 3-yard TD pass to Nate Adams in the first quarter.
