Season Preview: Idaho

Day one of a brief look at who Arizona will face this season. Over the next two weeks we will look at all 12 of Arizona's opponents.

Week One:

Saturday August 30, 2008

The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the University of Idaho Vandals

Arizona Stadium, 7pm

Idaho Facts: Idaho University is located in Moscow, Idaho. They play home games in the Kibbie Dome. They are members of the West Athletic Conference (WAC). The last time Idaho played in a bowl game was the 1998 Humanitarian Bowl. The 2008 season will be the second for Idaho head coach Rob Akey, who took over for Dennis Erickson who is now the head coach at Arizona State. In 2007 the Vandals went 1-11, included in the '07 season a 38-10 loss to USC and 45-28 loss to Washington State.

Good Cat News: One could argue that Idaho is one of the four or five worst teams in major college football. The truth of the matter is Arizona should be able to play a F game, Idaho play a A game, and Arizona still wins.

Bad Cat News: This is one of those games that fans will be unhappy if Arizona wins by less then 20. A home loss by Idaho is not going to happen. But we've seen Arizona play closeish game against teams like this.
