Panthers rally late to knock off No. 6 South Dakota

CEDAR FALLS (AP) — Marcus Weymiller scored on an 8-yard run with 3:02 left and Keelon Brookins sealed the victory with a 29-yard pick-6 as Northern Iowa rallied for a 34-29 upset win over sixth-ranked South Dakota on Saturday.

South Dakota turned it over on three straight fourth-quarter possessions — two of which the Panthers (5-4, 4-2 Missouri Valley Conference) turned into touchdowns.

South Dakota led 23-13 after Brett Samson’s 11-yard TD run with 12:37 left in the third quarter. But Eli Dunne jump-started the comeback when he connected with Isaiah Weston for a 4-yard score to cut the Coyotes’ lead to 23-20 with 3:56 left in the third.

Chris Streveler hooked up with Dakarai Allen from 4 yards out with 11 seconds remaining to cap the scoring for the Coyotes (7-2, 4-2).

Dunne passed for 228 yards and two TDs and Weymiller finished with 69 yards on 24 carries.

Streveler completed 34-of-51 passes for 401 yards and two scores, but he was also intercepted twice.

The Panthers are 3-1 in their last four games — all against top-ten teams.
