The 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl was supposed to be both close and high-scoring. It is the former, with the Utah State Aggies leading the Ohio Bobcats 9-7, but we've enjoyed only a bland 316 combined yards of offense.
At least Ohio scored a touchdown, a 26-yarder from Tyler Tettleton to Derek Roback.
ESPN's announce crew sold that touchdown as hard as they could, saying for many minutes that Ohio's offense had come alive. The Bobcats had 103 total yards for the game during the last assurance that their attack was finally on track. Let's face it, this game isn't quite as great as the bowl itself, which has giant fake potatoes all over the place!
Late in the half, Ohio's LaVon Brazill did set the school record for catches in a year. This was the offensive highlight.
The Aggies had a chance to make it 12-7, a confounding score, but pushed the field goal to the right. Reasonable football score preserved.
