The 2021 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl pins the MAC against the MWC as Kent State and Wyoming battle on the blue turf.
Both teams come in off a loss, as they had rollercoaster of seasons both ways. The Golden Flashes fell in the MAC Championship to the NIU Huskies, while the Cowboys were blown out by Hawaii in their finale.
Kent State Golden Flashes
Kent State’s season has been one filled with plenty of thrills and plenty of downsides. The offense was one of the best in the entire nation, while defensively, they were one of the worst in the country.
They couldn’t find any sort of rhythm in their loss to NIU in the MAC Championship game a few weeks back and will now head back to the drawing board on Tuesday.
The Golden Flashes still rank in the top tier in the nation in yards (480.8 per game) and in points (32.6 per contest). They’re led by Dustin Crum, who has dual threat ability. This is his chance for a huge bounce back game. He struggled mightily in the title game and that was really his first bad performance of the season.
He is accompanied by one of the best RB duos in the conference. The Golden Flashes average 243.2 rush yards per game and will look to that more here on Tuesday.
Wyoming has zero secrets when it comes to their offensive style.
They rank 27th in the nation with 195.2 rush yards per game. Xazavian Valladay has played a huge role in that as well here in 2021. He has carried the ball 190 times and has a combined yardage of 1217 yards this season. He’s found the endzone 5 times thus far and will play a crucial part on Tuesday in this one.
Wyoming will look to steal a page out of the NIU playbook. They know they need to lean on the run game and chew up clock.
Keeping this Kent State offense off the field is extremely crucial.
It also means a lot given how bad this Cowboys defense is against the rush. They rank 95th in the nation, allowing 171.3 yards against.
If Wyoming can sustain drives and keep the clock moving, they will be in for a solid afternoon.

I like Kent State’s chances to bounce back here.
Offensively they strike so quickly and they will have a nice gameplan here on Tuesday. Look for them to really put an emphasis on getting a push up front, which will lead to a lot of things opening in the secondary.
