MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Idaho quarterback Brian Reader threw for
299 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as Idaho rebounded from its
season-opening loss, defeating North Dakota 44-14.

Mike Scott was the top receiver for the Vandals (1-1) with eight
catches for 99 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown pass. Reader
also found Armauni Johnson, Marsel Posey and Michael LaGrone for
scores as Idaho rolled up 424 yards of total offense to North
Dakota's 197. Idaho's defense also returned two interceptions for
touchdowns.

The Fighting Sioux (1-1) led early, going up 14-3 midway through
the second quarter when Joey Bradley hit Greg Hardin with a 54-yard
touchdown strike. Bradley finished the day 15 of 31 for 166 yards,
one touchdown and one interception. Erik Mersereau returned a punt
79 yards for the other North Dakota score.

But Idaho, which lost 32-15 to Bowling Green on Sept. 1, scored
the game's final 41 points.
