VERMILLION, S.D. — University of South Dakota wide receiver Jeremiah Webb made the catch heard around South Dakota and the Division I Football Championship Subdivision on Saturday afternoon at the DakotaDome.

Webb hauled in a tipped 57-yard 'Hail Mary' touchdown pass from QB Carson Camp as time expired to lift the Coyotes to a dramatic 23-20 victory against No. 4-ranked South Dakota State in Missouri Valley Football Conference play.

On the play, Camp rolled to his right and heaved the ball toward the end zone. An SDSU defender first tipped the ball at around the 5-yard line and it was tipped again before Webb grabbed the ball around the goal line and leaned into the end zone.

The score set off a raucous celebration for No. 19-ranked USD, which improved to 7-3 overall and 5-2 in the conference standings.

That set the stage for Camp's dramatic TD pass to Webb.

SDSU dropped to 7-3 overall and 4-3 in the Missouri Valley.
