The Idaho soccer team will play their first playoff game in 27 years pacific Saturday at 4 p.m. against Southeastern Louisiana at Strawberry Stadium in Hammond, La.

Though it’s been nearly three decades since the Vandals have played meaningful football (excluding three bowl games in the Football Bowl Subdivision), this game against the Lions feels like a step back in time.

Granted, the way Idaho learned its playoff destiny this season involved more showmanship. In 1995, the vandals had to wait until the next day’s newspaper.
