Idaho quarterback Brian Reader is pressured by the Bowling Green defense into throwing an interception during the first half of their game at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow tonight. Bowling Green jumped out to a 30-7 halftime lead over the Vandals in their season opener. Bowling Green avenged its 2009 Humanitarian Bowl defeat by stopping host Idaho 32-15. See boxscore here And: Bruce Mann's first-half photo gallery here.

It wasn’t supposed to go this way. Not in the first game in the spiffed-up Kibbie Dome. Not after Idaho football coach Robb Akey declared his team ready for another march to the postseason. The Vandals, appearing ill-prepared for the start of the season, were steamrolled by Bowling Green 32-15 on the opening night of the college football season. In front of an announced crowd of 12,173 – the actual number looked smaller – the Vandals roared to a touchdown and defensive stop on the first two possessions Thursday night … then collapsed/Josh Wright, SR.

Thoughts on the game?
