South Dakota’s game-winning Hail Mary against South Dakota State has earned a nomination for Smooth Play of the Year at The Sports Illustrated Awards.
It’s the latest national nod for Coyotes quarterback Carson Camp’s 57-yard touchdown to Jeremiah Webb with just a second left on the clock. The play clinched the second-straight South Dakota victory over in-state rival South Dakota State and a spot in the FCS playoffs for just the second time in program history.
South Dakota lost 22-10 to Southern Illinois in the first round last Saturday.
Camp and Webb will attend the ceremony on behalf of South Dakota, USD athletics director David Herbster said in a release.
