Now, SDSU finds themselves in a very familiar place as they are knocking on the door of another trip to the National Championship game as they are set to battle in the semi-finals.

South Dakota State will travel to Montana State for a 1 PM kick-off on Saturday as the Bobcats advanced past defending champ Sam Houston State this weekend.

If South Dakota State is able to win, they will take on either North Dakota State or James Madison in the Championship Game in Frisco, TX.
