The IDAHO VANDALS faced the Wyoming Cowboys for the annual military appreciation day football game. The game was decided in overtime with a disappointing and frustrating loss for the Vandals. One high note was RYAN BASS who gained 123 yards in 19 carries and had 2 receptions for 15 yards. He is featured in the cover photo where MIKE LAGRONE cracks a cowboy during a 28-yard, 3rd quarter run.

DESPITE BEING DOWN TO THE NO.3 LSU TIGERS AT HALFTIME BY A SLIM 28-14 MARGIN, the Vandals could not keep up in the second half as the Tigers rolled to a 63-14 victory. Idaho had its highlights, including an electrifying 94-yard interception return by safety GARY WALKER to start the second quarter, which led to a Blackman-to-LaGrone TD that cut LSU's lead to 14-7. But the Tigers were too much.
