Vandals head football coach Paul Petrino said he was happy with the team’s effort Saturday.
“The defense flew around and hit hard,” Petrino said. “The offense was running hard and blocking hard. We broke a lot more tackles than we did the last couple times we were live. You heard big collisions. That’s always a good thing.”
Petrino singled out praise for the offensive line, which is replacing three starters from last year’s Famous Idaho Potato Bowl winning team.
