The South Dakota State Jacks have yet another win to put in the books.
Tuesday South Dakota officials presented the jacks with a corn-filled trophy for winning the inaugural "South Dakota Showdown Series."
The jacks beat their rival USD in the showdown by just one point. The series uses a point system in which each school can earn a maximum of 24 points per year based on head-to- head competition in the Summit League Tournament as well as academics.
And while there will always be a rivalry between the jacks and the coyotes on the court or the field, this competition is a friendly one.
Throughout the school year fans were able to visit a website to track the progress of the showdown and see point totals for their favorite school.
