South Dakota State South Dakota State Jackrabbits



There are two theories as to how and why the Jackrabbit nickname evolved. The most common belief is that it came from a story following a 1905 football game between the University of Minnesota and South Dakota State College, as the university was then known. A reporter knowing of the preponderance of jackrabbits in the Brookings area, was believed to have written that the SDSC team was a quick as jackrabbits.

The other theory about the origin of the nickname is given in The Jackrabbit, SDSU's yearbook. There is a poem in the 1907 yearbook that puts forth the idea that the yearbook is called The Jackrabbit because a group of juniors wished to immortalize themselves by changing the name of the yearbook. Athletic teams followed suit, adopting the nickname.

It is not clear if athletic teams had nicknames before this time or if SDSC teams were merely called the "state team" or "Brookings."
