Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl provides an opportunity for the Toledo Rockets to finish the 2012 season a game better than they did in 2011. Last year, a bowl victory pushed the Rockets to a 9-4 record, but on Saturday, the Rockets could reach 10-3 with a win. They will face a stiff test, though, in the Utah State Aggies, who will enter the game as the No. 22 ranked team in the country.
The Rockets have faced a ranked team one this season. In that game, they defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats 29-23 on the road. Toledo lost two of their last four games after that, but the win nonetheless proved that they can take down ranked competition.
Utah State has been one of the under the radar sensations in college football in 2012. They'll come into the game with a 10-2 record, with those losses coming by a combined five points to the Wisconsin Badgers and BYU Cougars. The Aggies are led by quarterback Chuckie Keeton, who threw for over 3,000 yards this season and ran for over 500 more while contributing 34 total touchdowns.
