UI Coach Petrino discusses how Old Dominion took the second half
MOSCOW, ID - It was Senior Day in Idaho as well, the Vandal football team tried to notch win number two onto their record.

And the Kibbie Dome was packed and the band was awesome as the 6-3 Old Dominion Monarchs came to Moscow to take on the 1-8 Vandals,and this one would be a shootout. First quarter, Vandals quarterback Taylor Davis runs a great read option, keeps the ball himself, and would dash to the left for the 17-yard touchdown run. Vandals go up 14-0.

The Monarchs would respond right away with quarterback Taylor Heinicke as he finds a wide open Marquel Thomas for the 23-yard touchdown-strike. Vandals still up 14-7.

After a Monarch field goal, another perfect pass from Heinicke as he finds Melvin Vaughn for 56-yard touchdown bomb. Old Dominion goes up 17-14.

Second quarter, Vandals trying to catch up, Davis is going to hit Vandal's star receiver Dezmon Epps...and don't try to catch him cause he's gone. 66 yards later, the Vandals tie this game up at 31 before the half.

But the Monarchs would start to pull away including this Colby Goodwyn 5-yard touchdown run,and the second half belonged to Old Dominion as the Monarchs take it 59-38. Coach Petrino discusses some of the mistakes.

"You know obviously our defense didn't play good, that's not hard to figure out," said Petrino. "Definitely I thought our offense played real well. A lot of the times we had to many drops...with the exception of...if you don't have those drops, I mean we had 505 yards, 38 points. If you just eliminate the drops we'd probably have 700 yards and at least 48 points."

The 1-9 Vandals will have a week off to recharge with their upcoming bye week before taking on a highly-ranked Florida State team on November 23rd in Tallahassee, Florida.
