South Dakota State completed its Dakotas Sweep Saturday afternoon with a two touchdown win over North Dakota, avoiding a post Bison loss that has bugged the Jackrabbits in the past.

The Big Sky saw some shakeup this weekend, as Sacramento State went to overtime to knock off Montana, while Montana State rallied to beat Weber State in a wild game that featured four safeties.

There are four weeks to go in the regular season before Selection Sunday, the playoff field is starting to come into shape.
