Famous Idaho Potato Bowl 2011 Score: Ohio Gives Utah State Safety

We can learn things from the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Things besides just how healthy, efficient, enriching and enlivening potatoes are as a crop, food, and way of life. Like why it's almost always a good idea to go for it at the goal line.

After the Utah St. Aggies got stuffed at the line, Ohio Bobcats quarterback Tyler Tettleton lost his grip on the ball, perhaps due to having just eaten an entire platter of buttery, french fried potatoes. Who could blame him! So fortifying. The ball scooted out the back of the end zone, giving USU the early lead, 2-0.

That's two points to none, which is the number of potatoes each American should eat for breakfast, not including hash browns.
