With the New Mexico State game set for this Saturday in Las Cruces, we take a quick look back at last Saturday's game against Fresno, including a series of images of Rolly Lumbala's season-long 46-yard run against the 'Dogs. We also provide a brief update on the team.
Kris Anderson has started every game on the offensive line this fall.
REVOLVING O-LINE DOOR...
As has been the case all year,
's offensive line remains a revolving door of injuries and illness. Redshirt freshman guard
, a seven game starter for Idaho this year, suffered a knee sprain against
and will be out until at least the
game in Moscow in a couple weeks. Fortunately, back this week after missing the Fresno State game serving a one-game suspension is junior left guard
, who had also been out since the
game having gone to the ER for an emergency appendectomy the week of the
game. Out for the rest of the year with a broken thumb is true freshman left tackle
, who filled in for an injured
in the second half against Washington, and started against Hawaii and
. It is believed Bates will be able to retain a redshirt for this season. The line this week will be redshirt freshman
at center (7-game starter this year),
and Jade Tadvick all rotating in at guard, and Nate VanderPol and
working the tackles.
CLIMBING THE LADDER...
Redshirt junior field goal kicker
has steadily improved this year, and now holds the TWO longest field goals completed this year in the WAC. His previous long of 46 yards set against Utah State was crushed last week by his 50 yarder against Fresno State. For the year he has improved his average to 80%, which pegs him third in the WAC behind Fresno's Clint Stitser (83.3%) and Louisiana Tech's Danny Horwedel (81.8%).
CROSSING THE PLANE...
True freshman runningback
scored the first touchdown of his career Saturday against Fresno State when he went in from nine yards out. The score gave Idaho a 7-0 lead on the first series of the game. For the year Brown is averaging 3.0 yards per carry with a long of 21-yards on the year.
WON'T LET THE O-LINE HAVE ALL THE FUN...
In a year loaded with "freakish" injuries, redshirt freshman long-snapper
is reportedly out for the rest of the year with torn ligaments in his hand, an injury that was suffered against the Bulldogs Saturday. The injury will require surgery, thus Joel's season is over. His replacement is believed to be defensive end
MONSTER IN THE MIDDLE...
Redshirt senior middle linebacker
continues to have an amazing senior campaign. Not the biggest or the fastest, he is among the toughest and currently leads the NATION in solo tackles on the year with 66 through the first seven games. His 88 tackles on the year ranks him among the nation's top 10, and he is ranked second in the WAC behind New Mexico State middle linebacker Jimmy Cottrell. Which should make for quite a show-down this weekend in Las Cruces.
converted a 50-yard field goal Saturday against Fresno State, the longest completion this season in the WAC.
True freshman runningback
scores his first career TD, taking it 9-yards to the house to give Idaho a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.
Redshirt senior defensive end
registered his first career sack Saturday against the 'Dogs, and also forced this fumble on what would have been his second sack of the game.
True sophomore runningback
burst over the right side of the line Saturday for his longest rush of the year: 46 yards. The run set-up Idaho's go-ahead touchdown in the first quarter.
A solid crowd was on hand Saturday to cheer on the Vandals.

And, just for fun, here's a look back at what the Dome looked like just two and a half years ago.
