Kent State Falls to Wyoming in Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

A strong defense and timely offense helped Kent State take an early lead, but Wyoming's rushing attack was too much as the Cowboys pulled away 52-38 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl played Dec. 21 in Boise.

For Kent State (7-7), this was the team's second bowl appearance in three seasons, having earned the university's first-ever bowl win in 2019 at the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl played in Frisco, Texas.
