Vandals receive vote in AP poll

These are heady days for the Idaho football program. Fresh off a 29-25 come-from-behind win at San Jose State, the Vandals (5-1, 2-0) made a big enough impression in the eyes of one Associated Press top 25 poll voter to earn a vote in the rankings. You can find the poll here. Scott Wolf of the L.A. Daily News was the pollster who put UI in his top 25. Also of note, ESPN projects the Vandals in the Humanitarian Bowl here.

Pretty crazy to see even a mention of the Vandals in the poll. In recent years they made plenty of appearances in ESPN's Bottom 10 -- but nothing like this of course. Next up for Idaho is a home date with Hawaii.
