This is the fourth time USU has received an invite to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and the first time since 2015. Matt Wells led Utah State to its fifth straight bowl game, by far the best streak in program history. The Aggies finished 2015 with a 6-7 record after falling to Akron 23-21.

The Panthers travel to Boise for the first time and will play in their sixth bowl in program history. GSU began play in 2010 and has played at the FBS level since 2013.
