Idaho's Maurice Shaw tries to come up with a pass against Nevada defender Doyle Miller, right, in the third quarter of an NCAA college football game today in Reno, Nev. Nevada won 70-45. AP story here, and: ESPN boxscore here.

Nevada’s offensive numbers are surely going to make Vandal fans cringe for a while: 662 total yards, 484 via the ground, 9.1 yards per carry. But believe it or not, there was a time when Idaho looked to have a solid chance to pull an upset. Despite falling behind 21-0, the Vandals showed plenty of moxy in the second quarter and went into the half down 28-24/Josh Wright's full Sportslink report here.
