The first Potato Bowl USA football game took place on Sept. 24, 1966 between UND and Idaho State. It was billed as a battle between two of the largest potato-growing regions in the United States: Idaho and the Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota. UND stomped Idaho State 41-0 in that first meeting. UND holds an impressive 39-12 Potato Bowl record, dating back to that first game.
