2013 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Preview
The 2013 Famous Idaho Potato will be played on Saturday, December 21st at 3:30 PM between the Buffalo Bulls and the San Diego State Aztecs. Buffalo had the toughest non-conference schedule in the country, getting beat handily by Ohio State and Baylor before finally getting a win over Stony Point. Buffalo will look for a big game and maybe a few big-time plays from kick returner Devin Campbell. The Bulls defense is solid and is the main reason behind Buffalo's 8-4 record this season.
San Diego State has a solid defense as well, ranking in the top 25 in most defensive categories in Division 1-A. The Aztecs had to deal with Ohio State in the preseason as well, and didn't do too well against the Buckeyes either. They lost their first three games of the season but rebounded to win seven of the next nine. The Aztecs played in four overtime games the season, so don't be surprised to see a fifth in a very evenly matched Idaho Potato Bowl.
