Houston Baptist scores late, makes 2-point PAT for 53-52 win
Sat Sep 14, 2019 7:49 PM

VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - Dreshawn Minnieweather bulled his way into the end zone from the 1 and Ben Ratzlaff passed to Coleman Robinson for a two-point conversion in the final minutes to give Houston Baptist a 53-52 win over South Dakota as the Huskies snapped a 20-game losing streak against Division I teams on Saturday.

Minnieweather scored with 1:14 remaining in the game, leaving South Dakota's Austin Simmons plenty of time, but Tra Fluellen intercepted to end the threat and seal the win for HBU, which has won two straight for the first time since 2016.

Bailey Zappe threw a career-best five touchdowns and 513 yards for Houston Baptist (2-1). Ratzlaff, who threw the winning toss to Robinson, finished with 155 yards receiving.

Simmons threw for a career-best and school-record 537 yards on 48-of-65 passing with four touchdowns as the teams racked up a combined 1,238 yards and 105 points.

HBU was driving with the game tied at 45-45 when Elijah Reed picked off Zappe. Five plays later, Kai Henry broke for a 23-yard TD run to put the Coyotes ahead 52-45 with 3:03 remaining in the game.

Zappe then engineered a nine-play, 70-yard drive for the win.
