Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
IVI is a sponsor of the annual Idaho Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, held annually at Boise State University’s Bronco Stadium. The No. 22 Utah State University Aggies (11-2) capitalized on a 28-point fourth quarter to top the University of Toledo Rockets (9-4), 41-15, in the bowl game held on December 15th, 2012. The win marked the Aggies’ sixth-straight, moving them to an 11-2 record on the season. Many of the area’s valued IVI customers and vendor partners were able to join IVI owners and associates at our hospitality sponsorship tent at the bowl event.
