Last Friday, it was announced that the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (FIPB) will kick off on Saturday, December 22, at 1:30 p.m. Mountain Time at Boise State University’s Albertsons Stadium. It will be televised on ESPN.
For college football fans, athletes and sports reporters, the FIPB is a much-anticipated bowl game. It has become a breeding ground for top NFL prospects like Josh Allen, a first-round draft pick and now quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, who declared his eligibility for the draft at the FIPB when he accepted the MVP award in 2018.
“People are craving normalcy during this unusual year, and for many being able to watch their favorite college football teams play ball provides entertainment and something exciting to look forward to,” says Frank Muir, President and CEO of the IPC. “And there’s no doubt the players, who have had their seasons side-tracked a bit, will play their hearts out on the blue turf.”
