Last Saturday afternoon in Logan (Utah), with two minutes left in the third quarter, Idaho held a 17-14 lead over Utah State. Then the game exploded, and the Vandals were left with a frustrating 42-17 loss. Despite the loss, freshman receiver Preston Davis caught his first TD pass, sophomore LB Paul Senescall led the defense with nine tackles, and tailback DEONTE JACKSON led Idaho in rushing.


OBSERVATIONS AND HIGHLIGHTS:

- Nathan Enderle - Quarterback Enderle had a mix of ups and downs Saturday, and finished the game with 161 yards on 20-of-35 attempts, with two touchdowns and one interception.

- Eddie Williams - Idaho's clear go-to receiver, senior Eddie Williams had an impressive 45-yard completion in the first quarter called back because of an offensive line penalty, and still finished the afternoon with 70 yards on five receptions including a touchdown. One of Idaho's team leaders, Williams brings it every down of every game - a key asset with so many young athletes learning the game on offense.

- Preston Davis - Kudos to true freshman wide receiver Preston Davis on recording the first touchdown of his career at Idaho - an acrobatic catch in the endzone that gave Idaho a 14-7 lead in the third quarter. He finished with the most receptions on the team (6) for 52 yards and a long of 16 yards. With starting split end Maurice Shaw out with an injury, Davis will be looked to as an even more prime target in the weeks ahead.

- Paul Senescall - Kudos to University of Idaho sophomore linebacker Paul Senescall as he led the Vandals defensively Saturday with nine tackles (including seven solo take downs) in a backup role at Logan. Senescall is a versatile athlete and is expected to play multiple linebacker positions for the Vandals this season.


- INJURIES - Idaho sustained to key losses in the game Saturday at Utah State. Junior strong safety Shiloh Keo, a 2nd Team All-WAC selection last year and Idaho's starting punt returner and defensive captain, missed the entire second half with what is believed to be a shoulder injury. Offensively, Idaho lost one of it's top young wide receivers when Maurice Shaw went down with a leg injury. How long each will be out is uncertain.
