By Monday, the Sun Belt was abuzz with talk of what Idaho's big, quick true freshman running backs did against Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

"They're strong and they're fast and durable," Lafayette linebacker Stanley Smith said. "We hit them; they just kept moving."

They are Jayson Bird and Rolly Lumbala, who run 6-foot, 220 pounds and 6-2, 227, respectively. Against Louisiana-Lafayette, Bird and Lumbala ran for 134 yards and 125 yards, respectively.
