SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 2011 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl will be played this year on Dec. 21 at 5 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium, organizers of the college football post-season game announced Tuesday.
The seventh annual contest will match teams from the Mountain West and Western Athletic conferences. Unlike last year, when Navy lost to San Diego State 35-14, the bowl does not have a team contractually bound to the game.
Brigham Young is scheduled to play in 2012, and Army is set to appear in 2013, if those schools' football teams win enough games to be eligible for a bowl appearance. Bowl organizers are negotiating with Navy for a return trip the following year.
No date has been set for the Holiday Bowl, which will be played sometime between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.
