The awakening continued in Idaho, as the Vandals' offense resumed the resurgence started a week before in Saturday's 35-31 win at New Mexico State.

Senior quarterback Brian Lindgren, a preseason All-Conference pick, went to the bench to start the season as coach Tom Cable opted to go with sophomore Michael Harrington. But with the offense floundering, Cable gave Lindgren the start last week. It didn't pay immediate dividends, as he threw three first-half interceptions. But the senior came back strong, leading the Vandals from a 28-0 deficit.

Cable was pleased not only with the offensive production, but with the confidence his team showed.
