BOISE, Idaho – It’s official. Levi Williams will make his second career start as an Aggie in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against the Georgia State Panthers.

It will be Williams’ second Famous Idaho Potato Bowl start after he led the Wyoming Cowboys to a 52-38 win over Kent State in 2021.

“Just God’s plan I guess, bringing me back to the Potato Bowl,” Williams joked.

“Levi did a great job at New Mexico,” head coach Blake Anderson said over the weekend. “He’s been in this game before, as we know. I thought he did a phenomenal job of coming in that last week. Preparing the right way and going out and playing with some poise and leadership. I’m excited for what Levi can do in his last game of his career.”
