Junior tailback RYAN BASS and the Idaho Vandals will put a cap on what has been a disappointing 2011 season Saturday at Nevada. The Vandals (2-9 overall, 1-5 WAC) will try to beat the Wolf Pack (6-5, 4-2 WAC) for the first time since joining the WAC in 2005. It is the last chance for Idaho to do that since Nevada is heading to the Mountain West Conference next season.

"I think it [being 6-1 at this stage of the season] is great for our seniors, its great for our fans, for the whole team - coach Akey. It's a great start, but that's all it is – it's a start. We need to keep going, we need to keep playing good football. There's nothing guaranteed yet, but we need to keep playing well, and we have been." - QB Nathan Enderle following Idaho's win over Hawaii.
