SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Wayne State held Augustana scoreless for three quarters, earning a 10-7 win over the Vikings on Saturday at Kirkeby-Over Stadium. The Wildcats move to 2-3 on the season, 1-0 in the South Division, while Augustana falls to 2-3, 0-1 in South Division play.

Augustana held Wayne State's offense on its final drive, but was pinned down at its own nine yard line with 24 seconds to play in the game. The Vikings ended Wayne State's bid for a shutout when Heid plunged into the end zone with 3:46 to play in the game.

The Vikings had a chance to make it a one-point game late in the first half, but missed two field goals, one from 37 yards and one from 34.

Augustana rushed for 154 yards on the game, led by Dajon Newell, who finished with 86 yards. CJ Ham ran for 66 yards on 18 attempts, while grabbing two passes for 11 yards. Trey Heid finished the game 15 of 33 passing for 140 yards, and also rushed for Augustana's only score.

Noah Huisman led the Vikings receivers with 46 yards on four catches, including a 21-yard catch. Newell caught four passes for 28 yards and Nick Lee snagged two balls for 24 yards.

Augustana held Wayne State to just 36 yards rushing and 188 yards through the air. The big blow came on an 80-yard touchdown strike from Zach Osborn to Adam Stark. Osborn finished the game 11 of 21 for 188 yards and a touchdown. Charlie Davidson rushed 26 times for 53 yards for the Wildcats.

Wayne State took advantage of a short field on its second possession of the game, and took a 3-0 lead on a 36-yard field goal. Dunn sent a punt just 24 yards and the Wildcats took over at Augustana's 38-yard line. The Viking defense held WSC's offense on third down and three yards to go to force the field goal attempt.

The Tyler Basch field goal attempt was nearly blocked, but he put the 36-yard attempt through the uprights. The Vikings started to move the ball on its next possession before being forced to punt from their own 39-yard line. Dunn punted the ball 31 yards and the Wildcats were called for holding to back them up to their own 20-yard line.

On the first play of the drive, Osborn hit Stark for an 80-yard touchdown pass to give Wayne State a 10-0 lead with 1:30 left in the first quarter.

Augustana had two chances to make it a seven-point game late in the second quarter, but missed two field goal attempts. Dunn sent the first one wide right, from 39-yards, but Wayne State jumped offside to give the Vikings a first down at the WSC 17-yard line. Dunn came on to attempt a 37-yard field goal and sailed it wide right.

Dunn got another chance to put the Vikings on the board in the first half, but sent a 34-yard field goal attempt wide left with 20 seconds left in the first half. Wayne State would carry its 10-0 lead into halftime.

Augustana rushed for 74 yards on 23 attempts in the first half and threw for 101. Newell rushed for 30 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards in the first half. Ham rushed 11 times for 29 yards while catching two passes for 11 yards.

Augustana held WSC's Charlie Davidson to just 26 rushing yards on nine attempts in the first half. Osborn completed six passes on 14 attempts, including an 80-yard touchdown pass to Stark.

Both teams punted three times in the first half. Augustana was 3 of 10 on third-down conversions while Wayne State converted 3 of 7 third-down attempts.

Augustana got on the board with 3:46 remaining in the game on a rushing touchdown by Heid from one yard out to bring the score to 10-7 after a successful extra point by Dunn. The score concluded an eight-play 61-yard drive that started at Augustana's 39-yard line. The series was extended on a 32-yard rush by Newell, bringing the Vikings into Wayne State territory.

The Viking defense held Wayne State to just 36 yards on the ground, the third game this season they have held an opponent less than 100 rushing yards. Augustana had three sacks on the game, one each by Brandon Mohr, Jake Lee and Paul Ingram.

Mohr recorded his third double-digit tackle total of the season, leading the team with 11. Mohr recorded 1.5 tackles for loss. Ben Skelly and Nate Kirby both added eight tackles and Jake Lee finished with a career-high six, including 4.0 tackles for loss.

Augustana hits the road next Saturday to take on second-ranked Minnesota State at 1 p.m. in Mankato, Minn.
