The Coyotes took over on their own 47 and Chris Streveler used eight plays to drive his team 41 yards for the winning kick. South Dakota was 0-5 all-time against the Penguins (3-2, 1-1).

Streveler finished with 360 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-35 passing. Streveler also led the Coyotes in rushing with 73 yards on 16 carries.

South Dakota is 5-0 for the first time since 2005.
