BROOKINGS, S.D. -

For the first time in a longtime, the Jackrabbit football team got to spend Thanksgiving at home without having to prepare for a game on Saturday.

By virtue of getting the number eight seed in the FCS playoffs, South Dakoa State gets a bye week and and home game December 3rd where they'll face the winner of tomorrow's  1 PM St. Francis at Villanova game

It's the first time they've ever gotten the bye and just the second home playoff game in program history.
