.South Dakota State defeats Youngstown State 42-13

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Zac Zenner scored three touchdowns as South Dakota State kept its FCS playoff hopes alive with a 42-13 win Saturday over Youngstown State.

Zenner ran for 186 of the Jackrabbits' 312 yards rushing in a battle between two top-20 FCS teams. Seventeenth-ranked SDSU (8-4, 5-3 Missouri Valley) won its fourth straight game, while No. 18 Youngstown State (8-4, 5-3) lost its third straight.

Zenner scored on runs of 1 and 6 yards, and caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Austin Sumner. He left the game in the fourth quarter as a safety measure should the Jackrabbitrs get into the playoffs.

SDSU snuffed out the Penguins' running game, allowing just 75 yards rushing on 24 carries. Youngstown State's Kurt Hess completed 9 of 19 passes for 138 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Andre Stubbs, a receiver, was the Penguins leading rusher with 39 yards on one carry.
