Before adopting its current name in 2011, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl was known as the Humanitarian Bowl since its inception in 1997. The lone exception was from 2004-06 when it was known as the MPC Computers Bowl.
It is currently a matchup between teams from the Mountain West Conference and the MAC, but the game also had associations with the Big West Conference, Conference USA, the ACC and the WAC.
• In 2004, Georgia Tech held Tulsa to minus-56 rushing yards en route to a 52-10 victory. It's the most lopsided version of this bowl and also still is the lowest rushing yards for a game in Tulsa history.
• The only overtime game in the history of the bowl was played in 2006. Paul Pinegar threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Spach in overtime, his fifth of the game, as Fresno State beat 18th-ranked Virginia 37-34.
