It's time we be honest with ourselves, Boise State fans: there's nothing impressive about the Idaho Potato Bowl.

YES: it's on the blue

YES: we love out Idaho potatoes

YES: a bowl game is a bowl game

but, no...there's nothing about this bowl game that feels exciting, especially when it comes to seeing our hometown team play in it. However, with a two-loss Boise State team, it's looking all the more likely this year.

Had UCF, the top-ranked Non-power 5 conference team lost last night...Boise State stood a real chance at playing in a bigger bowl. Unfortunately, UCF won with authority. Now, the experts have us playing in some mediocre bowl games despite the national rankings.

Two bowl projections stand for Boise State:

  • Boise State vs Western Michigan at the Idaho Potato Bowl
  • Boise State vs Army in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl (Ft. Worth, TX)
