Idaho defense lacking swagger in losses

MOSCOW, Idaho – From the moment trends started to crystallize in spring camp through the first three weeks of the season, the Idaho Vandals were sure of one thing about their defense: It was playing with a boldness and energy that had been absent for years. The new defensive mentality was evident for a while. But somewhere between the second half of a numbing loss to Colorado State and last week’s meltdown at Louisiana Tech, the defense’s confidence has given way to a flurry of questions.

Louisiana Tech shreds Idaho defense for 678 total yards

RUSTON, La. – Ross Jenkins threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, and Louisiana Tech had 678 yards of offense in a 48-35 win over Idaho on Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-4, 2-1 Western Athletic Conference) had their fifth-highest offensive total in school history and the Vandals (3-3, 0-1) totaled 526 offensive yards.

Vandals’ Axman regains health after cancer battle

Vandals improve their rankings

MOSCOW, Idaho – In Aaron Lavarias’ first year at Idaho, it was the linebackers who seemed to have everything figured out. They were the ones who told the newcomers on defense – and they were almost all newcomers back then – where to be on the field, what to do, which way to go. They also happened to perform at the highest level, for a while at least.

Idaho finds perfect mix in win over UNLV

MOSCOW, Idaho – When Robb Akey took over the Idaho football program four years ago, this must have been what he envisioned – the Kibbie Dome pulsating for a nationally televised game, and the Vandals’ defense flying around with as much energy as he exerts on the sideline. Saturday against UNLV, Idaho’s plan came together seamlessly from the start. It smothered the Rebels in a dominant first half and rolled to a 30-7 triumph in front of Dad’s Weekend crowd of 15,390.
