"I tell you what, I love these players ... Don't doubt these players, they'll prove you wrong," Akey said.
The Vandals surged ahead 28-14 in the second half on touchdown runs of 8 and 13 yards by De'Maundray Woolridge, only to see the Falcons rally with 28 of the next 35 points.
Woolridge finished with 22 carries for 126 yards, and Enderle was 15 of 28 for 240 and four touchdowns after starting the game 1 of 6.
Tyler Sheehan was 33 of 47 for 387 yards and four TDs for Bowling Green (7-6). It was the 14th consecutive bowl loss for the Mid-American Conference.
The Falcons' rally started when Jimmy Scheidler took a well-designed tight end screen 15 yards for a touchdown. After Idaho went three-and-out, Barnes had a 5-yard reception for his second TD catch of the game, tying it at 28.
Davis put the Vandals in front again with a nifty 30-yard, catch-and-run touchdown, leaving Roger Williams grasping at air. Again, the Falcons answered, this time with an eight-play drive capped by Willie Geter's 2-yard plunge with 3:51 left that tied it at 35.
Idaho drove to the Falcons 40, but had to punt and BG took over with 1:49 left. Facing third-and-11 at their own 49, Barnes got lost in Idaho's zone coverage and ran free down the sideline for the score.
