South Dakota State had a decent shot on its final possession. The Jackrabbits were past the 50-yard line with 5 seconds. They tried a catch and pitch, unsuccessfully, instead of a Hail Mary to the end zone.
Oh my God! South Dakota State tried it again with 5 seconds left but time ran out and #1 Trevor Williams made the tackle! Sam Houston wins their first championship in program history!! What a game!! #FCSChampionship https://t.co/6RcvXMp6QS pic.twitter.com/BLf7oqXtvZ
