Famous Idaho Potato Bowl betting

Last year, Kent State and Wyoming (-3.5) squared off on the blue turf both wearing color home uniforms in one of the worst visual matchups of all time. Kent State wore all-yellow uniforms, which clashed with the blue turf Wyoming sports brown uniforms and yellow pants. Besides the awful color schemes, this game was shootout, where the Cowboys won 52-38 behind 200 rushing yards and four rushing TDs from backup QB Levi Williams.

Wyoming easily covered 3.5 points and the over (59) hit by a mile.
