Defense pivotal to South Dakota State meeting high expectations

(STATS) - There are few questions surrounding South Dakota State's high-powered offense heading toward what should be a banner 2017 season.

As the Jackrabbits get set to conclude spring practice Saturday with their annual intrasquad game at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium, the defense is under the microscope. At the least, its players have to figure out how to slow down the Jackrabbits' All-America triumvirate of quarterback Taryn Christion, tight end Dallas Goedert and wide receiver Jake Wieneke on a daily basis.

The Jackrabbits are coming off a 9-4 season which included a first-ever Missouri Valley Football Conference co-title and a quarterfinal-round appearance that marked their deepest run ever in the FCS playoffs.
