A few months ago, when Josh Alford first heard that Cody Hawkins would be Idaho State’s next head coach, the cornerback’s mind went a few different directions. He liked the hire. Then he thought about where Hawkins was coming from: UC Davis, where he served as the Aggies’ offensive coordinator — where he helped his team torch ISU in a six-score a month prior.

“So I was like, OK, this guy can put up points on the board,” Alford said. “So we felt good.”
