After a tough outing against Nebraska that showed the promise and peril of this year’s team, the Idaho Vandals return home to take on the UNLV Rebels in a bid to defend the Kibbie Dome turf on UI’s annual Dads Weekend. Under the lights and in front of national TV cameras broadcasting the game live on ESPNU, it’s Vandal Game Day once again!
In Lincoln, the Vandals’ defense stood strong and once again forced key turnovers, but offensive struggles and a series of ill-advised interceptions thrown by Nate Enderle blunted Idaho’s attack and led to a deflating defeat. Bouncing back will be key, as a victory tonight would keep the Silver and Gold on pace for bowl eligibility for the second consecutive year.
The Rebels are 0-2 to start the season, but both losses came against tough opponents: Wisconsin and Utah. Idaho last met UNLV in 2005, falling by the score of 34-31, and the Vandals trail in the all-time series, 3-2.

That’s right, it’s football season again — and tonight, Idaho kicks off what the Vandals hope will be a worthy followup to the team’s most successful season in more than a decade. After winning the 2009 Humanitarian Bowl in spectacular, heart-stopping fashion, there’s expectations for the Silver and Gold once again.
The North Dakota Fighting Sioux are an FCS squad from the Great West Conference, and while this game may seem like just a tune-up for a bowl-champion FBS team like Idaho, the Vandals can’t afford to overlook anyone. History is littered with FCS-over-FBS upsets — most notably Appalachian State’s monster win at Michigan — and the Fighting Sioux aren’t going to roll over and play dead.
Can Robb Akey, Nate Enderle and the rest of the Vandals lead Idaho to a second-straight season opening victory? We’ll find out in just a few hours.

RENO, Nev. — It’s a tough challenge, being the No. 7 seed facing off against a No. 2 seed. It’s even tougher when you’re playing the No. 2 seed on their own home floor.
That’s the task facing the Idaho Vandals tonight in the Lawlor Events Center, as they square off against the Nevada Wolf Pack in a Western Athletic Conference Tournament quarterfinal. The winner goes on to the WAC Tournament semifinals tomorrow.
Don Verlin’s squad has struggled to find consistency this year, as chemistry and mental lapses cost the Vandals valuable victories. Idaho’s season, which started so promisingly with an upset of Utah in Salt Lake City, now comes down to this game. Win, and the dream is alive. Lose, and it’s back to Moscow for the long wait until November.
Can the Vandals pull off the improbable bracket upset? Join us, live from courtside, and find out.
Complete pregame coverage begins at 5:30 p.m., with tipoff at 6.
It’s Senior Day in Moscow, as the Idaho Vandals look to clinch the 7-seed in next week’s Western Athletic Conference Tournament by defeating the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors in both team’s regular-season finale.
But the Vandals will have to do it without second-leading scorer Kashif Watson, who’s been suspended indefinitely by Don Verlin after making Twitter posts critical of the second-year coach.
That’s going to put big pressure on guys like Shawn Henderson, Jeff Ledbetter and the rest of Idaho’s bench, who will have to put up big numbers to help cover for Watson’s absence.
This will be the final Vandal Nation Live home Webcast of the season. We will be on the road in Reno starting Wednesday for complete coverage of the WAC Tournament, as Idaho’s men and women fight for the conference’s pair of automatic bids.
Honored will be graduating seniors Mac Hopson, Marvin Jefferson, Luciano de Souza and Steffan Johnson.
Join us for Senior Day pregame coverage at 4:30 p.m., tip at 5.
