The first game was played in 1997 as the Humanitarian Bowl. The Cincinnati Bearcats of Conference USA, making their first bowl game appearance in 46 years, defeated Big West champion Utah State, 35-19.

Despite the cold weather in Idaho in late December, the game has produced some big offensive displays. None were bigger than the 2016 matchup between Idaho and Colorado State when the teams combined to break or tie 24 game records in Idaho’s 61-50 win. The Vandals and Rams rolled up 1,206 yards of offense and the 84 combined second half points were the most in college football bowl history.

The only overtime game came in 2004, when Fresno State defeated Virginia, 37-34.

Most All-Time Wins at Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

WINS TEAM YEARS WON
3 Boise State 1999, 2000, 2002
3 Idaho 1998, 2009, 2016
2 Fresno State 2004, 2007

Even though it hasn’t won a game here since 2002, Boise State is still tied for the all-time lead in victories. Idaho won its third Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in 2016 and is a perfect 3-0. However, the Vandals will likely never return after they dropped to the FCS following the 2017 season.

Boise State had an impressive run early in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl game’s history, winning three of four games from 1999 through 2002. The Broncos have the advantage of the home crowd when they play in this game, while most bowl games are usually played at neutral sites. Boise State and Utah State have each appeared in a record four games.

Some of the notable MVPs from past Famous Idaho Potato Bowls include Utah State wide receiver Steve Smith, Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan, Boise State quarterback Jared Zabransky, Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Utah State running back Kerwynn Williams, Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis and Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen. Even though this game usually features smaller-conference teams, plenty of those former MVPs have gone on to successful careers in the NFL.

The Mountain West has gone 3-2 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, while the MAC is 3-6.
