PHOTO GALLERY: Idaho vs Western Michigan

Saturday's home tilt against Western Michigan exemplified how quickly things can turn in a game. At halftime Idaho was down just 14-7 and playing solid football. To start the third, Idaho recovered an onside kick and tied the game at 14 with 12:39 left in the quarter. WMU answered with a quick TD, and Idaho began pressing in all facets, resulting in numerous breakdowns and a WMU 51-28 win.

SOME OBSERVATIONS OF THE GAME

- Senior H-Back Eddie Williams, one of the team's leaders, had a tremendous game. Statistically, he gained 161 yards on nine receptions, including a 50 yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He plays hard every play of every game, but he clearly turned it up even more this weekend, running and blocking with even more authority.

- Sophomore quarterback Nathan Enderle got off to a rough start Saturday, when one of his early first quarter passes sailed after he was hit by a rushing defensive lineman, and the ball was picked off and returned for a touchdown. Enderle recovered though under heavy pressure, and finished with 334 yards and three passing touchdowns on 25-of-39 attempts and five sacks.

- Sophomore sensation Deonte Jackson continued on his quest as one of the WAC's top tailbacks, gaining 110 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown and a long of 25 yards.

- Sophomore wide receiver Maurice Shaw gained 31 yards on four receptions, including an acrobatic 10-yard touchdown reception at the start of the fourth quarter, cutting WMU's lead to 37-21.
