The 131st meeting between the South Dakota Mines and Black Hills State football teams brings with it some extra implications this weekend.
The Hardrockers got the better end of the match-up last year with a 28-to-26 victory, but the Yellow Jackets are off to a three-and-oh start to this season.
Mines Head Coach Zach Tinker and company are off to a 2-and-1 start to the year, and know this game is different than any they'll play this season.
South Dakota Mines tangles with Black Hills State Saturday at O'Harra Stadium.
Kick-off is slated for six o'clock.
