Idaho cornerback Reggie Smith, a senior from Northridge, helped the Vandal defense to a 38-35 come-from-behind victory over Southwest Texas State.

Smith blocked a punt with 9:32 to play and recovered it for a touchdown to spark Idaho's comeback. He added five tackles.

Also named was Boise State linebacker Tim O'Connor, a senior from Concord, who clinched Boise State's 24-14 Big Sky victory over Weber State when he raced 25 yards with an interception for a touchdown with 20 seconds left.
