YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Pierre Strong rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns and South Dakota State cruised past Youngstown State 47-16 on Saturday.

Chris Oladokun threw for 260 yards and started the game with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Zach Heins on South Dakota State’s first possession. Pierre made the lead 14-0 when he scored from the 5-yard line nine plays after a Youngstown State three-and-out.

Amar Johnson and Rudy Voss added rushing touchdowns for the Jackrabbits, who had 293 yards rushing to the Penguins 76. Jaxon Janke made seven catches for 111 yards.

Mitch Davidson completed six of seven passes for 111 yards for the Penguins (2-4, 1-3) with a pair of touchdowns to Bryce Oliver. Oliver made three catches for 78 yards.
