     BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Taryn Christion accounted for three touchdowns, Chase Vinatieri kicked a 43-yard field goal in overtime, and South Dakota State improved its FCS playoff chances with a 27-24 victory over Illinois State on Saturday.
 
     South Dakota State (8-2, 5-2 Missouri Valley Conference), ranked sixth in the FCS poll, has won four straight and is a game back of North Dakota State atop the conference standings.  The 17th-ranked Redbirds (6-4, 4-3) have lost two in a row.
 
     Illinois State's James Robinson, who finished with 83 yards rushing and two touchdown runs, bullied up the middle from 5 yards out for a score to tie the game 24-24 with just over two minutes remaining.
 
     In overtime, The Redbirds' Sean Slattery hooked his 41-yard field goal attempt before Vinatieri's kick split the uprights.
 
     Christion threw two touchdown passes in the first half, and ran for an 84-yard score in the fourth quarter.  He had 172 yards passing and ran for another 110.
