Aaron Duckworth rushed for 142 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries as the Idaho Vandals beat Sacramento State 28-6 to open the 2017 college football season.

The win is the 6th in a row for the Vandals dating back to last year, their longest win streak since 1994, 23 years ago!

The Idaho defense held the Hornets in check all night while Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan was 14 of 19 passing for 163yds and two touchdowns.

After the game Linehan said the offense wasn't as sharp as he would have hoped but the big thing was getting the win and they can work on some issues between now and September 9th when the Vandals host UNLV of the Mountain West.

The Vandals game with UNLV will kickoff at 5 p.m. MDT September 9th, pre-game at 4 p.m. on sports radio 630 The Fan.

Also, be sure and listen for the Idaho coaches show with Paul Petrino every Wednesday at 7 p.m. MDT.
