Written December 15th, 2011 by MaliBuckeye

Throughout this bowl season, tBBC’s team looks at all the bowls to give you enough info to convince your family it’s worth watching. Enjoy!

"I like them taters, Mmm hmm..."

The Basics: 5:30 PM ET on ESPN, from Boise Idaho. Ohio (9-4, 6-2 MAC) and Utah State (7-5, 5-2 MWC.

The History: Hey! It’s the third sponsor in three years! That’s a tradition that must be preserved… Second MAC/MWC matchup of the day.

Ohio Bobcats- Frank Solich’s team made it all the way to the MAC championship as the East representative, and fell apart late to drop a heart breaker to Northern Illinois. They’re 39th in the nation in passing yardage, led by QB Tyler Tettleton’s 3100 yards and WR LaVon Brazill’s 1100 yards receiving.

Utah State Aggies – Rushing attack led by Robert Turbin’s 1400 yards is sixth in the nation. Took the defending national champs to the wire in the season opener, and destroyed Wyoming 63-19 early in MWC play.

Fun Facts- The Buckeyes have never played in this game, nor played Utah State (home of impressive gender role research).  Brady Hoke believes he’s undefeated against the Bobcats (he’s wrong); Brandon Hanning is still a punk.
