The fierce rivalry between the University of Idaho and Idaho State University takes a back seat to a more important mission during this year's Rivalry Week.

From Monday, November 13, to Saturday, November 18, Bengal and Vandal alumni, supporters and fans are encouraged to join forces in the fight against hunger. The initiative, aptly named "Vandals and Bengals: Tackling Hunger Together," aims to make a significant impact on the lives of Idahoans facing food insecurity.
