MOSCOW -- The Idaho football team is up against the ropes. The Vandals are 4-4 on the season, so that means they need three wins in their last five games to clinch a bowl berth.
That's not the easiest task, figuring Idaho plays two of the top teams in the conference over their next two games.
The Vandals face Boise State next Friday, but before that, Idaho plays Nevada this weekend. Both games are in Moscow.
Kickoff between the Vandals and Wolf Pack is scheduled for 2pm on Saturday. It's Military Appreciation Day at the Kibbie Dome.
Nevada is currently fourth in the WAC standings (they're 2-1 in conference play), but they're 7-1 overall on the season. The Wolf Pack boasts one of the top offensive attacks in the country, averaging more than 520 total yards per game.
Idaho struggled last week against Hawaii. The Warriors are the top team in the WAC, handing the Vandals a 45-10 loss. With that said, the team feels like they're ready to get back on track against Nevada. They won't let the oddsmakers, who've pegged them as an 11-point underdog this weekend, tell them any different.
