University of Idaho Football team can learn from the miscues

MOSCOW, ID - One thing that accompanies youth is a lack of experience, something the Vandals Coaching Staff is striving to compensate for in their next game.

The University of Idaho Football team has a young but talented team in Moscow that can learn from the miscues of their game one loss to North Texas. Some of those miscues included eleven penalties, costing the Vandals 74 yards, or going five of 14 on third down and 0-2 while trying to convert fourth downs. Head Coach Paul Petrino plans on working on his team's consistency.

"There was like five situations where we would have one two three really good plays in a row, and then on the fourth play we would shoot ourselves in the foot," said Petrino. "Either with a silly penalty, or a missed assignment, or a missed read, or...they didn't do anything to stop us, we stopped ourselves, and that's something that you can't have. It's hard enough to fight your opponent, you can't hurt yourself."

The Vandals will look for redemption against the Wyoming Cowboys this Saturday with a scheduled 1 p.m. kickoff. The Cowboys lost a close one to Nebraska last week 37-34.
