Vandals working toward return to FCS, Big Sky

(STATS) - Two particular trophies sitting inside a display case at the Idaho Vandal Athletic Hall of Fame seem to be shining brighter this year.

The Walter Payton Awards won by quarterbacks John Friesz and Doug Nussmeier in 1989 and '93, respectively, are surely drawing extra interest in the display that overlooks the Kibbie Dome weight room and sits just outside football coach Paul Petrino's office.

Idaho is stepping back to its football past to move forward into what the Vandals hope is a brighter future. After 22 seasons on the FBS level, they are returning to the FCS and the Big Sky, where they played as a founding member from 1963-95, winning eight conference titles and making 11 appearances in the NCAA Division I-AA (now FCS) playoffs. During that heyday, Friesz and Nussmeier captured the Payton as the national player of the year.
