Vandals are awesome. No really, they are.

Nobody saw this coming, and I mean NOBODY. The Idaho Vandals are atop the WAC conference after jumping out to their best start in recent memory with a victory over San Jose State.

The Vandals (5-1, 2-0 in the WAC) were able to muster the decisive scoring drive with Enderle on the bench and backup Brian Reader under center. Reader completed his only pass attempt — a crucial 11-yarder to Eric Greenwood. But the last march was all about a rushing attack that was money most of the night. The Vandals ran seven straight times after Reader’s completion, and punctuated the winning drive with a stirring DeMaundray Woolridge 5-yard TD run.

Woolridge is quickly becoming one of the most clutch performers Idaho has had in a LONG time. He has eight touchdowns through six games, and he’s averaging 6.0 yards per carry behind a stellar offensive line. (Princeton McCarty is also shining behind that line as well.)

Now, what does this mean? For starters, Idaho is alone atop the WAC with a 2-0 record. And it’s one win from locking up a bowl berth. That victory could very well come against Hawaii.

Boise State better be worried...
