went 14-19 for 274 yards and 2 TDs in his first career start…
Sophomore DE Ryan Winterswyk was injured on Thursday and didn’t play
vs. Idaho State… Sr. MLB Kyle Gingg also missed the game but is
likely back vs. Bowling Green… Sophomore WR Titus Young scored 2

errors as the level of competition rises over the next 2 weeks vs.
Bowling Green and Oregon.

division with SMU at 12 losses in a row… Idaho hasn’t beaten an FBS
team since beating La Tech on Oct. 14, 2006.

program over an SEC team since 1999. The game also marked the first
time a current member of the SEC played in Ruston, LA since LSU came
to town in 1908… Former Georgia Tech quarterback Taylor Bennett
started for Louisiana Tech and completed 14 of 40 passes for 175

New Mexico State

be playing vs. Nicholls State on September 4 but the impending
arrival of Hurricane Gustav in Louisiana caused the game to be
postponed. No date has been set for a make-up game as of yet.
The Aggies are at
Oregon this Saturday.
