2011 Bowl Games: Utah State Headed To Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl has announced that the Utah State Aggies will be one of the two teams playing in their bowl game when it kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 5:30 p.m. The game, played at the stadium of the Boise Statet Broncos, will also feature a team to be determined from the Mid-American Conference.

The Aggies finished their season with a 6-5 record, ensuring themselves of bowl eligibility when they defeated the Nevada Wolfpack last weekend. It was Utah State's fourth-straight victory, ensuring a bit of momentum heading into the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl's festivities.

"Utah
 State 
is 
an 
ideal 
team
 for 
us 
to 
host 
at 
the 
Bowl," 
said 
Kevin 
McDonald, 
Executive 
Director of the 
Famous
 Idaho Potato
 Bowl. 


"The 
school
 is
 in 
close 
proximity
 to
 Idaho's 
potato 
region,
 their
 fans
 and
 students
 are
 passionate 
and willing 
to 
travel 
and 
the 
team
 is 
well‐coached 
and
 plays 
with
 intensity
 - qualities
 that 
local 
fans 
are 
accustomed 
to."

SB Nation's Bill Connelly believes that the Aggies will face the MAC's Toledo Rockets in one of the first bowl games of the season, according to his latest 2011 Bowl Projections.
