About the Series

The South Dakota Corn Utilization Council is proud to partner with Learfield Sports on behalf of both South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota Athletic Departments for the title sponsorship of the South Dakota Showdown Series. The 2012-13 inaugural season presented a new milestone event in South Dakota athletics history.

The South Dakota Showdown Series, presented by South Dakota Corn, tracks head-to-head match-ups and conference championship results in 17 sports with each school accumulating points toward the overall series championship. The Series also recognizes outstanding academic achievement by the schools’ student-athletes.



Both Universities and the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council appreciate the cooperation of all fans in honoring the values of good sportsmanship at all South Dakota Showdown Series events and will be promoting these values throughout the season to their respective fan bases and all followers across the state of South Dakota.
