    Okay I'm going to make this quick because there's not a whole lot to say about a game that will be over at halftime.

    Last week Idaho faced the worst statistical defense in the country at home and came away with 279 yards and 16 points. They weren't able to throw the ball consistently and they weren't able to convert in the red zone. Despite all that they should have still been in a good position to win at the end if it wasn't for a huge Alfonso Onunwor drop in the endzone with less than minutes left. So yeah, Idaho can't play offense right now. That said, the defense was very solid last week giving up only 7 points in the second half and that score came off a play in which the Idaho defender tripped and fell on a long pass play.

    App St is 3-2 with losses to Georgia and Wake Forest. They escaped a close one against NMSU last week in a game where their defense forced 6 interceptions. They actually trailed 31-24 in the fourth quarter before scoring the last 21 points of the game.

    Senior QB Taylor Lamb leads an experienced offense that will look to control the clock and run the ball down your throat.

    Idaho is just not going to be able to throw the ball here. The offensive line has been very shaky in pass protection, the WRs are having trouble getting open, the routes are ignoring the middle third of the field, and Matt is holding onto the ball way too long and taking bad sacks. If they want to win they need to have a big day on the ground with Duckworth and Saunders.

    Prediction:

    Idaho struggles to move the ball but their defense keeps them in the game into the late second quarter when the D just gets to tired from being on the field all game. App St. blows the barn door open and wins handily in the second half.

    App St. 45
    Idaho 10

    Go Vandals. Maybe don't look like shit today please.

    What the fuck man. Idaho up 17-0 somehow moving the ball really well in the second quarter. Defense looks legit completely shutting down App St's run game.

    They probably still lose somehow, but at least the game isn't out of hand already.

    Pick to start the second half too.

    Causing turnovers and moving the ball? Is this December of last year or something?

    I would not have disagreed with going for it there. Henderson has been able to get at least 1 fairly easily in those situations. The way the defense is playing though I don't mind taking the points. They're actually getting some rest today so hopefully they can continue to keep up the pressure.

    LOL. There's that momentum swing. It will be 21-20 App St. before the end of the third quarter.

    20-13 Idaho. App State moving the ball at will and Idaho can't seem to get positive yards.

    This is what getting out-coached looks like BTW. The Mountaineers are making great adjustments and the Vandals are not. The defense is once against getting gassed late in the game because the offense can't stay on the field.


    HAHAHAHAHA as I type this it's 20-20.

    Fuck you Idaho, I knew this shit was going to happen.

    And then the fumble by Duck deep in their own territory. Wow. You can't make this shit up.

    I'd rather go scuba diving in a tank full of starving sharks with Lena Dunham's pussy farts as my only source of air than watch this trash.

    Ugly 4th quarter. Can’t capitalize on a 10 yard punt. Sacked almost every play on the final 2 drives. No bueno.

    Well if they go for it there and get in that would have made the difference.

    That 2nd half was difficult to digest... Didn't even want to talk about it on Saturday
