BOISE — The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl 7 on 7 passing and lineman tournament wrapped up Saturday afternoon after two days of competition.

Ultimately, Emmett defeated Mountain View to win the passing challenge.

The lineman challenge also took place Saturday, with teams competing in events such as tug-of-war, bench press, tire flip and truck pull.
