Homecoming Week 2006

Homecoming Week is finally upon us as the 2006 Vandal football team prepares to battle New Mexico State Saturday at 2pm in a Western Athletic Conference matchup. A loaded week for Idaho athletics includes volleyball taking on Fresno State (7pm Thursday night) and San Jose State (7pm Saturday night), while soccer takes on Eastern Washington (3pm Tuesday), Hawaii (3pm Friday), and SJSU Sunday (1pm).

Although the focus for this website, and for many Vandal fans, is the Homecoming football game matchup this Saturday afternoon (2:05pm kickoff) against a much improved New Mexico State football team (2-2 overall, 0-0 WAC), several Vandal athletics teams will be be in action throughout Homecoming Week. The woman's volleyball team has matches Thursday and Saturday night (both at 7pm) against Fresno State University and San Jose State University, respectively. In addition, the Vandal woman's soccer team will face off Tuesday against the Eastern Washington Eagles (3pm) and Sunday against San Jose State University.

Be sure to make plans on taking the trip to Moscow for Homecoming to meet up with old friends and cheer on the Vandals to victory in all their athletic events.
