On Saturday, University of Minnesota Duluth football team defeated Sioux Falls 42-34 to improve to 3-0.

It was Military Appreciation Day at Malosky Stadium, and the day started with a flyover of jets and a celebration of veterans.

The Bulldogs found themselves up 14-0 after Kyle Walljasper ran in for a touchdown and Jimmy Durocher ran one of his own in before the end of the first quarter.

Sioux Falls would come back with a vengeance, though, as they scored two touchdowns less than four minutes apart from each other.

Kyle Walljasper and the running game stifled Sioux Falls, as UMD ended the game with six total rushing touchdowns. Walljasper passed for a career high 270 yards and had four rushing touchdowns of his own.

The win was also head coach Curt Wiese’s 100th win of his career as a head coach. He accrued a 9-11 record at Marietta college before joining the UMD staff.

UMD will take on Southwest Minnesota State next Saturday.
