Injuries: The biggest new injury for UND is to starting center Peyton Lotysz, who suffered a leg injury at practice earlier this week. In his place, UND is expected to start Danny Carroll, who has starting experience from earlier this year before snapping issues led to a change to Lotysz. Also keep an eye on Luke Skokna, who saw mop-up time last week at Indiana State. After a couple of weeks practicing with the scout team, Skokna was back with the starting offense at practice this week. Defensively, UND doesn't appear to have any new injuries. The primary injuries are to Caden White and Sammy Fort. The starting linebacker and safety, respectively, are out for the year. The extent of the Lotysz injury is unknown. South Dakota is also without a pair of top players in defensive lineman Nick Gaes and cornerback Myles Harden are expected to be out against the Hawks.


The Fighting Hawks need to make USD quarterback Aidan Bouman uncomfortable. Bouman has a great arm with a great frame, but he doesn't move that well and the Coyotes have given up a lot of pressures this season. Offensively, UND needs to grind some in the run game with Tyler Hoosman against a USD defense that is giving up big yards. The Hawks need to continue clean offensive line play despite the late swap at center.

The Coyotes need to exploit UND's secondary, something that could be said every week. It's going to come down to whether UND's pass rush can get to Bouman before he can hit the big pass plays the South Dakota offense will need to beat UND. With all of the talk of Bouman, though, remember the Yotes have a strong run attack with Travis Theis and Shomari Lawrence. Theis was a handful for UND in Vermillion a year ago. For the Yotes defensively, USD needs to not allow Tommy Schuster to extend plays with his feet. The teams to give UND the most trouble this year got to Schuster — a lot, in fact — in Southern Illinois (seven sacks) and South Dakota State (five sacks).
