Broncos and Vandals Go Bowling
For the first time in several years, both the Boise State Broncos and the Idaho Vandals will be playing in post season bowls. Find out where you'll find your favorite team here. The Boise State Broncos will be travleing to Phoenix on December 27th to play Baylor in the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl. The game will be broadcast on ESPN and wil start at 8pm MT. The Broncos finished the season 10-2 while the Bears were 6-6. This will be the final game for interim Baylor Coach Jim Grobe who took over after Art Briles was fired.
The Idaho Vandals will return to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl to take on the Colorado State Rams. Rumor has it that ESPN, that owns the bowl, pulled some strings to get the Vandals back to the Treasure Valley. The matchup usually features Mountain West verses MAC. The Vandals are in the Sunbelt so someone traded a spot to make this happen.
The game will be December 22nd at 5pm MT in Boise. Colorado State was 7-5 and the Vandals were 8-4.
