In the mood for some mashed potatoes, Rams fans? If so, you might just be in luck come bowl season.

The CSU football team, which closed out the regular season Saturday with a resounding 63-31 romp at San Diego State, has qualified for its fourth consecutive bowl game. And if prognosticators are on the mark, it appears the Rams’ postseason destination will be the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise.

The Rams will learn their postseason fate Sunday when the College Football Playoff committee and its bowl partners announce the pairings for all 40 bowl games. Last year the Rams played Nevada in the inaugural Arizona Bowl in Tucson.

Boise bound?

Current projections have the Rams playing a team from the Mid-American Conference – either Miami (Ohio) or Central Michigan ­– in Boise. The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 22, with ESPN providing live coverage.

Rams are rolling

Regardless of the destination or opponent, the 7-5 Rams will enter the bowl season on a serious roll. They have won four of their past five games while piling up 500 or more yards of offense the past three games. All of their losses this season came against bowl teams, while they defeated three bowl teams.

CSU will unveil ticket prices, travel options and other bowl-related news following Sunday’s announcement.
