KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Jon Wassink ran for a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to lift Western Michigan to a come-from-behind win over Idaho, 37-28 Saturday night.

Matt Linehan scrambled in from 3 yards out to put the Vandals in the lead, 21-19 with 3:39 left in the third quarter, then made it a 28-19 advantage by hitting Alfonso Onunwor with a 39-yard scoring strike with 1:03 left in the period.

Wassink capped a seven-play, 80-yard drive, scampering the final 22 yards, cutting the Vandals’ lead to two points, then capped a six-play, 33-yard drive with a 1-yard run for the lead. After Giovanni Ricci scored the two-point conversion, the Broncos held a 34-28 lead.
