Associated Press

MOSCOW, Idaho — Running back De’Maundray Woolridge ran for a 2-yard touchdown with 52 seconds left Saturday to boost Idaho to a 35-34 win over Louisiana Tech.

In the final second, Louisiana Tech’s Matt Nelson attempted a 56-yard field goal to change the outcome. It had the distance but went wide left.

Louisiana Tech (3-5, 2-3 Western Athletic) dominated the first half with a 28-14 lead. But Idaho’s defense held the Bulldogs to a Myke Compton touchdown in the second half with the PAT going wide right.

Woolridge, who leads the conference with 14 touchdowns, scored twice for Idaho (7-2, 4-1) in the fourth quarter.

Idaho junior quarterback Nate Enderle went 25-for-45 with two touchdown passes and two interceptions for 327 yards.

Louisiana Tech quarterback Ross Jenkins went 17-of-30 for 220 yards and three touchdowns.
