    SALT LAKE CITY -- Mac Hopson scored eight of his 16 points in the last six minutes as Idaho beat Utah 94-87 on Friday, bringing the team its first win against the school in 71 years.

    Plagued by foul trouble, Hopson re-entered the game with the score tied and engineered a 13-6 run to end the game.

    Steffan Johnson scored 19 points and Jeff Ledbetter added 16 as the Vandals (1-0) took its first game after losing 11-straight on the road.

    The teams have played 15 times over the years and last Idaho victory was in 1938.

    The Utes (0-1) trailed much of the game but made their comeback behind freshman center Jason Washburn. After falling behind by eight, Washburn scored six points.

    But Hopson promptly hit an outside jumper and a leaner in the lane to spark the clinching surge for Idaho in the season opener for both teams.
