Akron and Utah State face off this afternoon in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN and ESPN Radio beginning at 3:30pm ET. Mark Neely, Mike Bellotti, and Kevin Weidl will have the call for ESPN. Announcers for ESPN Radio’s broadcast are currently TBD. That game will be followed up with the matchup of the Marmot Boca Raton Bowl at 7pm ET on ESPN and ESPN Radio. Toledo will take on #24 Temple in the game. Allen Bestwick will anchor the broadcast. He will be joined in the booth by Dan Hawkins and Tiffany Green. Dave Lamont, John Congemi, and Bret McMurphy will have the call for ESPN Radio in that game.

After today’s double header slate, ESPN will have two more double header matchups on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Boise State and Northern Illinois will face off in the Poinsettia Bowl while Georgia Southern and Bowling Green will vie for the win in the late game.
