South Dakota State Will Say Goodbye to Coughlin-Alumni Stadium with Four Evening Kickoffs
South Dakota State's final season at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium will feature more than half of the action under the lights. Four of SDSU’s six home football games during the 2015 season will have evening kickoff times.
The Jackrabbits open the home schedule with a 6:00 PM game against Southern Utah, Saturday, September 12. The game is the first of four straight at home for SDSU.
Following a bye week, the Jacks host their first-ever meeting with Robert Morris (PA), Saturday, September 26, 5:00 PM.
Missouri Valley Conference play starts a week later, Saturday, October 3, when SDSU welcomes three-time defending national champion North Dakota State at 6:00 PM.
The four-game homestand concludes Saturday, October 10, with a MVFC game against Indiana State at 6:00 PM.
Each of the Jackrabbits’ last two home games is scheduled for a 2:00 PM kickoff. The annual Hobo Day game against Northern Iowa, Saturday October 24, and the final regular season home game, Saturday, November 7, against Illinois State. That game has been designated as the Coughlin-Alumni Stadium Farewell. Beginning in 2016, SDSU will call Dana J. Dkyhouse Stadium home, which is currently under construction on the current Coughlin-Alumni Stadium site.
South Dakota State finished 2014 campaign with a 9-5 overall record and made their third consecutive appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.
