The UT Alumni Association at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

February 6th, 2013 Posted in Events
Your University of Toledo Alumni Association made the trip to Boise, Idaho to support our Rockets in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Saturday, December 15. Although the Rockets fell to Utah State, 41-15, a visit to the friendly capital of that state was a memorable experience for all involved. One of the best parts of the trip was the Association’s pre-game event, which was held at Bronco Stadium in the Allen Noble Hall Gallery – the site of Boise State University’s Hall of Fame.

More than 120 alumni and friends from nine different states were in attendance at the party just steps from BSU’s famed blue turf. Included was Den Brockway (Eng ‘60), a transplanted Toledoan who now calls Boise home. Attendees enjoyed an Idaho-themed buffet which included seared Idaho trout, a baked potato bar, northwest apple salad and a potato ice cream dessert.  The menu-ender was made from vanilla ice cream pressed into the shape of a Russet potato and then rolled in cocoa, split and topped with sweets to look just a baked Idaho potato!
