No. 1 seed Jackrabbits pull away in 4th quarter in FCS semis

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) Mark Gronowski passed to Jaxon Janke for the go-ahead touchdown and South Dakota State scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to break away from Holy Cross for a 42-21 win on Saturday in the FCS quarterfinals.

The top-seeded Jackrabbits (12-1), on a school-record 12-game win streak after losing to Iowa 7-3 in their opener, will play fourth-seeded Montana State in the semifinals. The Bobcats beat South Dakota State 31-17 in the semifinals in Bozeman, Mont., last year. This year's semifinal will be in Brookings.

The eighth-seeded Crusaders (12-1) gave the Jackrabbits a tough test through three quarters behind quarterback Matthew Sluka, who rushed for a career-high 212 yards on 26 carries. It was Sluka's 36-yard run that set up Peter Oliver's 1-yard TD plunge to tie the game at 21-all.
