After a three-year break, South Dakota arrived in Lincoln to resume their series with Nebraska. Several South Dakota players allegedly used a loophole which allowed them to play for the Coyotes for six or seven seasons by moving out-of-state in the offseason; therefore, many of South Dakota's players had faced the Cornhuskers four years prior. The game ended in a scoreless draw.
