Football team to finish season in Potato Bowl Dec. 17

Game against Utah State will be televised on ESPN

Following a 2011 season where the Ohio University football team recorded nine wins for just the sixth time in school history and set nine team records, the Bobcats have been invited to play in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Dec. 17 in Boise, Idaho.

The Bobcats will take on Utah State on ESPN, beginning at 5:30 p.m. inside Bronco Stadium. 

"This is a great bowl with a long-standing tradition and we are honored to be a part of the experience," said athletic director Jim Schaus. "Having an opportunity to compete in a third straight bowl game is a tremendous step for our football program and we couldn't be happier to play on the blue turf in Boise."

Ohio will play in a bowl game for the third straight season and will make its fourth bowl appearance in the last six seasons. The Bobcats will make their sixth bowl appearance all-time. A year ago, the Bobcats represented the Mid-American Conference in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.

Information on travel to Boise is available on Ohio's "Bowl Central" website.
