College Of Idaho Football Wins Opener

The College of Idaho, which reinstated the football program it disbanded 37 years ago, preserved its season-opening win with a blocked field goal. Quarterback Teejay Gordon had 335 yards in total offense and three touchdowns and Charlie Shepherd blocked a field goal with 29 seconds left to give the Yotes a 35-34 win over NCAA Division III Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. Saturday's game featured back-to-back kickoff returns for touchdowns, a botched kickoff and a blocked extra point. The Idaho Press Tribune reports the outcome was very similar to the team's last game, on Nov. 12, 1977. In that contest, the Yotes beat Pacific 24-23 in Caldwell after the College of Idaho was able to stop a 2-point conversion attempt. The Coyotes, a member of the NAIA Frontier Conference, host Montana Western on Saturday. CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) – September 9, 2014
