MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Patrick Perry rushed for just 64 yards but scored three times as he led San Jose State to a 28-13 win over Idaho on Saturday at the Kibbie Dome.
San Jose State (7-4, 4-3 Western Athletic Conference) all but locked up the win when Christopher Vedder intercepted Idaho quarterback Steve Wichman at the Vandal 4-yard line. Perry scored his second touchdown two plays later to give the Spartans a 21-13 lead with just over 10 minutes left in the game.
Idaho (4-8, 3-5 WAC) got on the board midway through the second quarter when Tino Amancio hit a 28-yard field goal. The Vandals then took a 10-7 lead just before the half when sophomore running back Jayson Bird scored from two yards out.
Perry capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive early in the second half with a 1-yard run to put San Jose State ahead 14-10.
Bird finished with 68 yards on 15 carries for Idaho.
