SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -The South Dakota Coyotes had a chance not many athletes get to have. A game for an automatic bid into the NCAA volleyball tournament.

In order to get that automatic bid the Coyotes would have to get past the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks in the Summit League Championship game.

The first set was tightly contested but the Yotes pulled away late to take a 25-23 victory in set 1. Set 2 was a battle till the bitter end with USD needing extra points to take the set 30-28. After that it seemed the momentum just stayed with USD as the Coyotes won the third set handedly 25-16.

The win in straight sets seals an automatic bid into the NCAA volleyball tournament. The yotes will learn their seed and their first opponent during the November 28th selection show. Coverage of that starts at 8:30 PM on ESPNU.
