CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Kevin Earl's 1-yard touchdown run in the second overtime led South Dakota over Northern Iowa 38-31 in a Missouri Valley Conference showdown Saturday.
Earl's overtime plunge capped a huge day, as he ran for two touchdowns and threw for 370 yards and three touchdowns, leading the Coyotes (4-3, 3-1) back from a 21-point third quarter deficit to tie the game with five seconds in regulation.
Northern Iowa (4-3, 0-3) scored three consecutive touchdowns in the second and third quarters to put the Panthers up 28-7 late in the third.
But South Dakota stormed back as Earl completed a 43-yard touchdown pass to Riley Donovan, then ran eight yards for a score, before leading the 7-play, 58-yard game tying drive, which ended in a 3-yard scoring strike to Terrance Terry as time wound down.
The Browns drafted former Arizona LB Scooby Wright III in the seventh round of the NFL draft, and he celebrated by jumping into the pool fully clothed.
