Vandal Football and UNLV played last season in what many consider the win that turned the season around for the Vandals. the two teams meet again Saturday. Idaho Public Radio’s Melanie Leija has more. (:46)
Idaho won its season opener against Sacramento State and now hosts UNLV at the Kibbie Dome Saturday.
UNLV lost its season opener last week, but Idaho coach Paul Petrino says he knows UNLV will be ready to play this week:
Paul Petrino: “You know, they played a lot better in that game when you watch it on film than all the publicity that was given to ’em. Their new quarterback, Rogers, made a whole bunch of plays, played really well. their receiver, Boyd, had a good game. Lexington Thomas at running back had a great game. They did a lot of good things in that game.”
Idaho has won six games in a row, including the final five games of the 2016 season. It is Idaho’s first six-game win streak since 1994, and tied for the sixth-longest winning streak in program history.
