If the season ended today, Idaho senior field goal kicker TINO AMANCIO would go down as having the No. 1 field goal percentage in the history of the University of Idaho at 69.6%, topping Tim McMonigle's record of 65.4% set in 1982-84. His 32 conversions is 4th all-time. Amancio has also made the on-side kick an art-form - a skill that helped UI convert five-of-five on-sides to start this season.

This season our site had kickoff specialist VICENTE RICO listed as a junior. However, all publications last week listed him as a senior in preparation for Senior Day. We were unable to confirm his class officially last week, and chose to add him to the senior list. This weekend our sources indicate he has one more year of eligibility remaining, and is expected to be back at Idaho next fall.

Although Idaho's offense struggled yesterday, redshirt freshman tailback DEONTE JACKSON passed the 1000-yard mark for the season and Idaho led this game 16-14 in the fourth quarter thanks to a tremendous defensive and special teams effort. But Idaho's inability to score took its toll as the Bulldogs mounted two fourth quarter TD drives for the 28-16 win. (All images inside by Larry Johnson)
