An imposing figure on the Idaho line from 1946-49, Carl Kiilsgaard helped lead the Vandal football team to two of its biggest upsets of all time. Just one year after losing to Stanford 45-0, the Vandals got their revenge when they marched into Palo Alto and took a 19-16 win from the 10th-ranked Cardinal in 1947. Kiilsgaard helped the Vandals upset another 10th-ranked team later that season, when the team downed previously unbeaten Utah 13-6. Kiilsgaard was voted team captain in 1949. Following that season in 1950, he was drafted in the fifth round by the Chicago Cardinals of the NFL.
