As most know BSU lost their bowl game on 12/24. But there are many more to come and include former Eastern Idaho residents on the field, in broadcasting and as Alumni/Fans.

Tonight it is Utah State University vs. N. Illinois. It's the 4th quarter and I'm relieved NIU missed the fieldgoal! Go AGGIES!!!!!!

On 12/ 27, BYU plays Washington. This will be an interesting game to many. Since Coach Sarkisian, accepted the position at USC, Washington only has a interim head Coach. Coach Peterson, who recently left BSU, is not involved.

Steve Sarkarsian played for 1-2 years at BYU.

BYU was not invited to join the PAC-12 as Utah was.

I'm personally not a fan of Coach Mendenhall, which will have no outcome on the game.

Some in Southeastern ID receive KSL. KSL will be broadcasting the game as well as ESPN. The color analyst for KSL is a recent graduate of Stanford Law School who was a receiver on BYU's special teams. His name is Nathan Meikle, from Idaho Falls.

Early this week Nathan's father died. Since his death was expected, he had talked with his family about his desire to have Nathan complete this opportunity even if it meant delaying his funeral. That is exactly what is happening.

Nathan, I wish you the best in your broadcast! You don't know me but you know one of my family members well. I'll be thinking of you and your family knowing the mixed feelings you have.

Here is a link to the BYU vs. Washington Fight Hunger Bowl:

I'm proud of all of our local athletes, commentators and fans who support their University or Universities in Bowl Games!

Question Simulcast on FM

If you want to hear this game, it is being broadcast on 105.5 FM in Idaho Falls. Nate Meikle is doing a good job all things considered.

I don't know if BYU can beat Washington, but it is nice to support a hometown color analyst.

What in the world is a first quarter suspension? I'll ask in the college football forum too, but please post if you know.
