When the Idaho football team needs to dial up a score, it’s starting to call the 907 area code.

As in Alaskan Daniel Hardy.

Hardy, of West High fame, hauled in a 26-yard score for his second touchdown catch of the season to help the Vandals earn a 34-31 road win at Northern Illinois.

The 6-foot-4 junior tight end is enjoying a career year for Idaho (3-1), leading the team in receptions (14) and touchdowns (2) while ranking second in yards (243). Last year he had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores.

Hardy is a big reason why the Vandals are second in the WAC, trailing only No. 5 Boise State.
