Name the Score contest for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

By Brian Murphy

The Chicago Connection "Name the Score" contest is back for its fourth season here at Murph's Turf. Many thanks to Chicago Connection for providing the prize (a gift certificate for a free pizza) each week.

The rules are pretty much the same as they have been, but for any newcomers here they are:

Utah State and Toledo meet in Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (2:30 p.m., ESPN) at Bronco Stadium and here is your chance to predict the score and win a prize.

Place your guess (whole numbers only, no fractions) with a winner and both teams' score in the comments down below and we will pick one winner. (Please limit one guess per commenter.)

The closest to the actual score of the game wins.

All entries must be received by 11 a.m. MT on Saturday.

I don't have an audio pick this week, but I will put my prediction in the comments. (Don't worry, I'm not eligible to win the prize.)

When you register to make comments at IdahoStatesman.com, you put in an e-mail address. I will contact the winner through that e-mail address.

If it comes down to tiebreakers, closest to Utah State's actual score, closest without going over and then first received will be the tie-breaking order.

Congrats to dreb9, who correctly picked the exact score of the Boise State-Nevada game.

Apple users, run the Gig of RAM your PC needs to have and read the dumb tech white papers, wrinkle your forehead and buy more food and toilet paper with the difference. The internet is a piece of junk anyway and your cats know this.

Utah State dominates

Dear Santa, All I wan't for Christmas is pizza.

Spread some love today.

Final score UTAH 41-15

Poster kirkbeck was -1 Utah and +3 Toledo
Poster BRONCO was +2 Utah and EVEN Toledo

I would think the best guess spreadwise goes to BRONCO and winning points to kirkbeck. If you base the winner on being the closest to the winning team's score when you have two scores that are within two point spread in net and statistically pretty similar, kirkbeck probably wins...that is only my best guess and I don't work here.

BRONCO went over.
