The last time the Idaho Vandals scrimmaged in fall camp the offense scored a 70-yard touchdown strike on the first play. Can they do it again in scrimmage No. 2?

The Vandals' second scrimmage is set for Monday at 2:30. With the first game approaching quickly, it's time to fight for a roster spot.

"I tell the players, 'you're the ones who write the depth chart, it's not the coaches. You guys write it with your performance,'" said head coach Robb Akey. "Well, here's an opportunity today to start having an impact on that depth chart."

The Idaho Statesman reported on Saturday that Idaho Athletic Director Rob Spear and outgoing Boise State Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier had a tentative agreement for a Broncos-Vandals game during the 2013 season. The game would be played in Boise.

"Nothing was set in stone," Spear told the newspaper. Spear said he would follow up with Boise State's interim athletic director to firm up that agreement.
