But with just 9 seconds left in the game the Warhawks punched it in for the go-ahead score and a 38-31 win. 2047 STAFF REPORT Sun, 07 Sep 2014 20:38:00 GMT 0 205 Idaho idaho Matt Linehan Scout VANDAL GAMEDAY: Idaho @ Florida THE VANDALS OPEN THE 2014 SEASON Saturday on the road at traditional SEC and national power Florida, and both sophomore Chad Chalich (11) and redshirt freshman Matt Linehan (10) will get their chances under center.

Gaylen Wood was on hand and files these images from the action. 2047 GAYLEN WOOD Thu, 07 Aug 2014 07:19:00 GMT 0 205 Idaho idaho Scout Building a stronger, faster Idaho WHO IS IDAHO'S STRONGEST PLAYER?
