Famous Original Idaho Potato Bowl

  • Who? Nevada (7-5) vs. Ohio (6-6)
  • Where? Albertson’s Stadium’s horrific blue turf in Boise, ID
  • When? 3:30pm EST/12:30pm PST (This is the only game of the day, why put it in the middle of the day on a weekday?)
  • Why? Because Nevada somehow managed a 7-5 record despite being outscored 385-256 and because 4-6 Ohio went on the road and outscored its opponents 118-27 over the final two weeks of the season to clinch bowl eligibility.
