Wyoming and Central Michigan are going through final preparations this week for the 2017 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Kickoff from Boise is set for 2:00 p.m. Friday and will be televised nationally on ESPN. If you're stuck at work, you can watch online via the Watch ESPN app by signing in with your television providers login information. Roy Philpott, Tom Ramsey, and Alex Corddry will be on the broadcast.

The Chippewas have appeared in a bowl game each of the last four seasons, meaning the seniors on the CMU squad have a lot of December practice. Last year, they lost to Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl. The Cowboys head back to their second consecutive bowl game, losing last year to BYU in the final Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego.

It's colder weather for both teams in their 2017 bowl game with temperatures predicted to be in the low 30's at kickoff. There is a slight chance of snow.

Analysts across the web are weighing in on the game and seem to be mixed about who will win the potato trophy.
