Toledo: For the third consecutive season, Toledo is going bowling. The Rockets began the season with an overtime loss at Arizona before stringing together eight consecutive victories, including a win over No. 21 Cincinnati, the school's first win over a Top 25 team since 2004. Toledo seeks its first 10-win season in over a decade.   

Utah State: Utah State won the WAC title and its only two losses this season, Wisconsin and Brigham Young, were by a combined five points. The Aggies' defense allowed the eighth-fewest points in the nation and sacked opposing signal callers 39 times. Utah State lost the Famous Potato Bowl last year to Ohio by 1 point. The Aggies look to finish this time around.
