Officially Bowl Week in Boise
The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is hanging with the New Years Six Bowls for 2020. Traditionally held before Christmas, this is one of the rare years the game will kickoff after New Years day!
Friday January 3rd Ohio and Nevada will play on the Blue, kickoff at 1:30 pm on ESPN.
The Bobcats and Wolfpack arrived in town today and both teams spent the late afternoon at Bishop Kelly High School attacking hunger. The two squads combined their efforts to put together more than 40,000 meal packets.
Later this week both teams will head up Bogus Basin road for some tubing, always a calming event for coaches as they watch key players zip down the hill at high speeds just days before kickoff.
Never the less, the tubing excursion is one of the players favorite events.
Friday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is the final bowl game this season to feature a Mountain West team. The league is currently 3-2 overall with wins by San Diego State, Hawaii and Air Force. The two losses are by Boise State and Utah State.
