The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is what the bowl played on Bosie State's infamous blue turf goes by these days. This year it will see Utah State, a barely bowl eligible 6-6 team from the Mountain West face off against Akron, the 7-5 third-best team in the MAC's  East division. It's a strange turnaround, as last season, the Aggies went 10-4, and the Zips missed out on a bowl berth with a 6-6 record.
