BOISE, Idaho - An Idaho safety and the Vandals' kicker are among this week's top players in the Western Athletic Conference.

The conference on Monday picked Vandal safety Shiloh Keo as the top defensive player for his performance in Saturday's 31-29 victory over Colorado State. The conference also tapped Idaho kicker Trey Farquhar as the special teams player of the week.

Keo had 15 tackles, including 12 solo, and an interception against the Rams Saturday night. His interception came in the final minute, sealing the victory and helping the Vandals improve to 4-1.

Farquhar, a freshman, was good on all four extra-point attempts and added a 47-yard field goal in the closing moments of the first half, putting Idaho up 20-7. The kick ties for the second longest of the season so far among WAC kickers.
