Idaho Vandals announce 2014 football schedule

The University of Idaho released its 2014 football schedule Saturday morning, a slate that opens at Florida and includes the Vandals’ return to a conference (the Sun Belt) after spending last season as an FBS independent.

Idaho will have five home games at the Kibbie Dome, four conference matchups and a nonconference affair Sept. 13 against Western Michigan in the Vandals’ home opener. The team’s Sun Belt opener is Sept. 6 at Louisiana Monroe. Idaho was previously in the Sun Belt from 2001-04 before joining the WAC. The Vandals will earn their frequent flyer miles with road games in Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, Texas, Georgia, southern California and North Carolina. Factoring in flights to the game and back to Moscow, it is approximately 24,460 miles combined, nearly enough to circle the entire globe. The earth’s circumference is 24,900 miles.
