UNLV 28 — Idaho 23

Idaho’s pursuit of bowl eligibility could potentially hinge on the outcome of Saturday’s game. Rebel quarterback Johnny Stanton comes off a 15-for-41 performance against Central Michigan, but the Vandal defense might have difficulty containing sophomore tailback Lexington Thomas. The game will be decided in the trenches by the Vandal offensive line.

Idaho 35 – UNLV 14

If the last two games indicate Idaho’s defensive woes, it will be a challenge Saturday in Las Vegas. Idaho’s key to win is lies in its defense. It’ll be a challenge but the Vandals will deliver and come out of Las Vegas with the win.

Idaho 24 – UNLV-17

Idaho continues the road game gauntlet against UN-Las Vegas. In their lone win, the Rebels scored 63 points — a total Idaho has yet to match in their three games combined. If Idaho wants to earn a second win, reducing turnovers and converting on third down will be key.
