Black Hills State University announces 2010 football schedule

Black Hills State University will host four home football games during the 2010 season including the Swarm Day game Oct. 2 against Dakota State University.

The Yellow Jackets open the season on the road on Aug. 28 in Des Moines, Iowa, where they will face Grand View. BHSU will then host their home opener against Wisconsin-Stout on Friday, Sept. 3.

“This fall we will open at Grand View,” says Jay Long, BHSU head football coach. “Grand View will be a good test for us to start off the year. After that, we get to come home to Spearfish and play on a Friday night. I know our guys will be excited to take the field and show what they can do in that kind of atmosphere.”

Following a bye week, BHSU will have consecutive road games against Jamestown and Mayville State before returning home Oct. 2 for a Swarm Day matchup with Dakota State University. The Yellow Jackets will celebrate Parents/Family Weekend Oct. 9 when they square off with Valley City State.

After traveling to Dickinson State, BHSU will return home for the final regular season home game against Minot State. The Yellow Jackets finish the regular season on the road at South Dakota School of Mines Oct. 30, followed by a trip to the Second Annual Dacotah Bank DAC Bowl in Fargo, N.D.

“Last season we were able to finish on a high note when we beat S.D. School of Mines and then DAC Champs Dickinson State in the Dacotah Bank DAC Bowl. This season we need to build off of that momentum,” says Long.

The Yellow Jackets finished the 2009 season with a record of 6-4 overall and 5-3 in the Dakota Athletic Conference. For more information on BHSU athletics, visit
