The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (formerly the Humanitarian Bowl) is an NCAA-sanctioned post-season college football bowl game. It debuted in 1997 and has been played annually at Bronco Stadium on the campus of Boise State University in Boise, Idaho.
The game currently matches a team from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC), usually the conference's champion unless that team either qualifies for the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) (an exception was made for Hawai'i, who has an automatic tie-in with the Hawai'i Bowl if it does not qualify for the BCS, until they left the WAC in 2012), with one from the Mid-American Conference (MAC) and is televised nationally on the ESPN family of networks. Cincinnati defeated Utah State, 35–19, in the inaugural game in 1997. The current Potato Bowl champions are the Ohio Bobcats; they defeated Utah State 24–23 in the 2011 game.

Famous quotes containing the words bowl, potato and/or famous:
“In a bowl to sea went wise men three,
On a brilliant night of June:
They carried a net, and their hearts were set
On fishing up the moon.”
—Thomas Love Peacock (17851866)
“The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through living roots awaken in my head.
But Ive no spade to follow men like them.”
—Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
“The essence of the physicality of the most famous blonde in the world is a wholesome eroticism blurred a little round the edges by the fact she is not quite sure what eroticism is. This gives her her tentative luminosity and what makes her, somehow, always more like her own image in the mirror than she is like herself.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
