BROOKINGS, S.D. -- Pierre Strong Jr. ran 21 times for 124 yards, Cole Frahm kicked a 29-yard field goal in the final minute, and South Dakota State beat Youngstown State 19-17 on Saturday.

Frahm came through when South Dakota State needed him most after he had missed a PAT attempt early in the third quarter and a 43-yard FG attempt early in the fourth.


Mark Gronowski helped get the FCS No. 8 Jackrabbits (3-1, 3-1 Missouri Valley Football Conference) into field goal position by completing back-to-back passes of 39 and 16 yards to Zach Heins. The drive started at the South Dakota State 21 with 2:53 left and ended on Frahm's field goal with 31 seconds to go.

The Jackrabbits' Tolu Ogunrinde sacked Mark Waid and forced a fumble that Thomas Stacker recovered to secure the win with a second left in the game.

Jaleel McLaughlin ran 26 times for 122 yards and two touchdowns for the Penguins (0-4, 0-4).
