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.

HOW DO YOU REPLACE A TEAM LEADER LIKE SHILOH KEO? Idaho has spent most of spring working out the kinks in a defensive backfield that won't feature the former Team Captain and All-WAC safety for the first time in four years.
