On Wednesday of this week the women's basketball team defeated Cal State Northridge at the Cowan Spectrum. The victory bumps the women's record to 5-10 Big West, 11-15 Overall, good enough for a tie for 6th in the conference race. With one game left, the women are assured a spot in the Big West Conference Tournament next week in Southern California. However, you have one chance left to see the women play in Moscow before they head off to the tournament, as they host Pacific (11-4 BWC, 16-10) this Saturday at the Cowan Spectrum. Its the senior's last opportunity to play in front of a home crowd, and a great opportunity for Idaho fans to show their support for what this undermanned team, and 1st year head coach Mike Divilbiss, have accomplished this season.

University of Idaho Press Release, Men's Hoops
Idaho and Boise State are investigating the possibility of moving their season-opening football game at Bronco Stadium from Saturday, Aug. 31, to Thursday, Aug. 29.
The reasons? To diminish the conflict with Labor Day weekend, possible TV exposure and more preparation time for each team's ensuing game.
