Poinsettia Bowl set for Dec. 21

City News Service

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 Monday.

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.
