CFB: Sioux Falls wins another NAIA title


Associated Press

ROME, Ga. ó Ryan Lomiller ran for 115 yards and a touchdown, and Braden Wieking kicked three field goals, including a tiebreaking 42-yarder in the fourth quarter to lead Sioux Falls to the NAIA Championship with a 25-22 win over Lindenwood on Saturday.

Adam Lopez returned the second-half kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown and his 61-yard return set up Lomillerís 1-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 22.
The Cougars (15-0) won their 29th straight game, finishing the decade with a record of 120-12, and three NAIA titles. The South Dakota school also won last season and in 2006, and was runner-up in 2001 and 2007.
Lomiller also made kicks from 41 and 37 yards in the first half.
After Sioux Falls went up 8-0, Lindenwood (13-1) came back on two TD passes from Philip Staback to Matt Bramow. He set a record at the Missouri school with 12 touchdown catches.
