In the 10 game series, the main way to characterize it is "closely matched." Since the 2 teams first met in 1971 (UI won 19-14), the winner has been decided by 7 or fewer points SIX out of the ten meetings (including a double overtime thriller in Moscow in 2000 that Idaho won, 44-41). The Aggies traditionally have a powerful rushing attack, but have seen their share of struggles this season. Idaho will be bringing in a defense that has done remarkably well defending the pass, but has given up monstrous yards on the ground all year. Will be interesting to see which team comes out on top in this department.....it could very likely decide the outcome of the game.
