South Dakota Vs. Northwestern Score: Wildcats Dominating, Lead 28-0 At Halftime

The Northwestern Wildcats got their bid for a 4-0 start off on the right foot on Saturday, as they hold a 28-0 lead over the South Dakota Coyotes heading into the second half. Venric Mark is leading the way, already at 97 yards off of 14 carries, and he's supplemented well by Kain Colter, who has put up 34 yards of his own.

Mark has three touchdowns already, which came on rushes of 3-, 6- and 4-yard carries, respectively. The other score from Northwestern came on a rush from Tyris Jones halfway through the first quarter, which made it 14-0. So far it's been pretty balanced in regard to scoring, with Northwestern moving down the field well.

South Dakota hasn't been able to get their running game going, with just 32 yards total. Quarterback Josh Vander Maten is the leading rusher with 30 yards to go with his 108 yards passing. They've failed to get much going on offense, and failed to convert a 4th-and-15 in which Vander Maten was unable to complete a pass to Terrance Terry.
