It's been a long time coming, way to go Aggies! Can't wait to dust off the bowling shoes

Sandy, UT

Nice job Aggies! I can't wait to watch and cheer for you. I'll look forward to see how your program develops within the next couple years.

Lehi, UT

Congratulations Aggies. You've earned it.

Farmington, UT

Congratulations Aggies!!!!

The only thing that would make it more perfect would for you to play the Utes because you'd defeat them!

Beat whomever you play, ok?

Saint George, UT

An excellent achievement for players, staff, and community.

Morgan, UT

Congratulations Ags...

Sorry Utah, but the Cherry Pit Bowl in Brigham City is still open.


I have more respect for our armed forces than a sack of Potatoes.

Go Big Blue!!!

Great job Aggies. There have been a lot of nay-sayers for the past three years. Coach A has taken great steps to build USU's football program. Continue to expect more to come.

Go Big Blue!!!

From a BYU fan, Congrats Aggies! I hope you are able to become a Bowl regular in years to come. I also hope you remain good enough to give a good Cougar team a good game every year (as long as my Cougars keep winning the vast majority of the time).

As a side note, I can't help but comment that the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl sounds more like something off of the menu at some fast food restaurant than a football game.

Logan, UT

I think the potato bowl is a perfect match for an ag school. In fact ag related bowls have kind of been USU's history, grape, raisin, and now potato. Naturally, the next bowl appearance has got to be orange right? Well here's to hoping. Go Aggies, great season.

Salt Lake City, UT

A sincere congratulations to the Aggies! My second favorite team in Utah.

Centerville, UT

Not the sexiest name for a bowl game I've ever seen, but it's a bowl none the less!

Orem, UT

I'm a die-hard BYU fan, but I'm more excited for the Aggies than BYU...future looks bleak compared to the past...but hey, BYU has more money in their pockets than ever before...that's really what it's all about, eh?

But I sat at a reception with one of the Aggie players, and he was a class act...unfortunately he's been unable to play due to surgery, but great guy! I think the Aggies are alright...

Provo, UT

Congrats Aggies! It's great to see you bowling this year

Congrats. Who cares which bowl game it is. This is a positive step in the right direction for Coach Anderson and the Aggies.

Why am I envisioning them playing in a large mess of mashed potatoes?

Will the fans be allowed to throw chips on the field, a la tortillas at a more famous bowl?

Well, at least all "eyes" will be on USU for once.

Lehi, UT

Hey, a lot of great bowl games are named for agricultural products - Orange, Cotton, Rose, Sugar and now Potato.

South Jordan, UT

Look for Anderson to get a better coaching offer from a better football school.

Holladay, UT

Great job Aggies. You could have given up with those early season heartbreaking losses. But, way to regroup and bring it the rest of the season. And for those BYU fans that can't just congratulate USU without slamming the Utes, have fun playing SMU or Lone Peak or whoever you play in the 5A Championship game. Great finish to a great high school schedule Cougs!

Woods Cross, UT

Three football teams bowling from Utah? Awesome!
