Idaho Opens 2017 Football Season

Idaho football opens its 2017 season Thursday night in Moscow. Here is Idaho Public Radio’s Bailey O’Bryant with more on that. (:40)


It’s a weeknight opener for Vandal football at the Kibbie Dome tonight, and coach Paul Petrino says he likes Thursday night games:

Paul Petrino:  “It’s great for recruiting because everyone’s at home watching the game. I think it’s nice because you get a couple of extra days to prepare for the next game. And, our guys are really excited. Hopefully, we get the dome filled, be loud, and it’ll be a real fun night.”

Idaho comes into this season with high hopes after winning six of its last seven games and a bowl game in 2016. Petrino says the team had a good fall camp and has a four-year starter at quarterback in Matt Linehan and a fast and talented defense.

Game time at the Kibbie Dome tonight is 6:00 p.m. pacific time.
