29-13 at the end of the 3rd and they almost lost the lead? Aztecs better tighten up.

Great game but man, those 3 interceptions. You can’t expect to win with turnovers like that.

309 passing yards and still a loss? Seems like the Bengals need to work on converting those yards to points.

Martin Blake and Armstead also deserve credit, 58 yards each ain’t too shabby.

Is it me or Idaho State needs to step up their defense? 302 rushing yards allowed is pretty bad.
