Fans attending the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, in Bronco Stadium can park for free in exchange for donations of non-perishable food and toiletry items. Boise State is teaming up with the Idaho Foodbank for the food drive.

“This is a great time of year to be helping those in need and we’re excited to be giving back to the community,” said Casey Jones, executive director for transportation and parking services at Boise State.
