VERMILLION, S.D. -- Trevor Bouma rushed for two touchdowns, including the game-winner, to help South Dakota come from behind and defeat Indiana St. 17-14 Saturday.
Bouma's game-winning, 4-yard score capped a 10-play, four-minute drive to put South Dakota (3-3, 2-1 Missouri Valley) up 17-14 with 11:06 remaining. Bouma also rushed for a 3-yard touchdown, and finished with 145 yards on 28 carries.
Despite two interceptions and two fumbles, the Coyotes had their second come-from-behind victory in as many weeks. Miles Bergner, who kicked a 41-yard game-winning field goal last week, kicked a 43-yard field goal in the third quarter to pull the Coyotes within four.
Quarterback Robert Tonyan Jr. moved the Sycamores (1-5, 0-2) to the South Dakota 34 before getting stuffed for no gain on fourth down with 4:18 remaining. USD then rode Bouma's back for six straight carries to run out the clock.
