Poinsettia Bowl tickets

2014 Poinsettia Bowl

If you're looking for a little December sunshine and some big-time college football, you're definitely in the right spot, as two of the top teams in the nation come to San Diego to battle it out on the gridiron each and every year. Come out and see some of the premier college athletes as they look to end their season on a high note, delivering plenty of bone-jarring hits, eye-popping catches and nail-biting moments that will have you jumping out of your seat on a regular basis. The Poinsettia Bowl has been a Southern California tradition for years and currently has tie-ins with Mountain West Conference and the Army Black Knights.

Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, also home to the Chargers of the NFL, is the perfect backdrop for a big game, but the atmosphere really gets taken to a whole different level when two top-tier college teams hit the gridiron looking to light up the scoreboard and end their season on a high note. Expect the game this year to be an unforgettable experience, not only because of the two high-quality teams involved but also because there will be plenty of celebratory events involved alongside the bowl game, which was reignited in 2005 after not being played for 50 years. And when the game is heating up and the crowd is about to erupt in anticipation of an epic finale, you'll definitely be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else.

The Teams

While the conferences associated with the Poinsettia Bowl may have changed over the years, one thing has remained constant: the high level of competition. Currently, the Poinsettia Bowl features a tough team from the Mountain West Conference and the Army Black Knights if they are above.500 at the end of the season. Texas Christian University and Navy lead the way with three appearances in the Poinsettia Bowl and TCU possesses an unblemished 3-0 record in the event, making them the gold standard so far as this bowl game continues to build momentum from one season to the next. After a grueling season, this is the type of game that is the perfect cherry on top of a memorable year of college football, making it the perfect place to be whether you're in the San Diego area or just looking for an excuse to travel to support your favorite team.

The Bowl Game Experience

Imagine that you're in the stands watching as your team storms the field to take on another talented team in a highly anticipated game like the Poinsettia Bowl. The stands are sure to be absolutely popping with excited fans that know how to show their support, making them the only place worth being if you consider yourself a true fan. We know that you can just sit at home watching on your flatscreen, or maybe even just catch the highlights on your smart phone, but it's a completely different thing to be there so you can see all of the plays that you know you'll want to be a part of. No matter how many other sporting events there are these days, college football remains the cream of the crop when it comes to spectator sports, but you have to be in the stands to truly understand what all the buzz is about.

Poinsettia Bowl History

The Poinsettia Bowl was resurrected in 2005 by the people behind the Holiday Bowl, who decided to begin holding the event annually after it had been dormant since 1955. It is sponsored by the San Diego County Credit Union and is officially known as the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, but is typically shortened to just the Poinsettia Bowl. Over the years, TCU has been the most dominant team in the Poinsettia Bowl, but Utah, BYU and Utah State have also had some great moments as well. Amazing players like Andy Dalton, Tyler Tidwell, Vincent Brown and Kyle Van Noy are just a few of the players who have dominated the Poinsettia Bowl and ended up the game MVP, and you never know who is going to be the next great player to burst onto the scene and lead his team to victory.

Poinsettia Bowl Trivia

Did you know that Navy holds the record for most points in a Poinsettia Bowl?

In 2005, the first season back for this bowl game, fans were treated to a high-scoring thriller, with the Navy Midshipmen beating the Colorado State Rams 51-30, easily setting the scoring record that holds to this day.

Poinsettia Bowl Fans

One of the reasons why college football is so great is because of the fans, and you're not going to find a better atmosphere than during the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego. The Poinsettia Bowl is a great celebration of college football that brings together two passionate fan bases and some supremely talented players and teams, making for an unbelievable display of college football that only seems to get bigger and better from one season to the next. When you're there alongside thousands of great fans who are on their feet in anticipation of an epic finale, you'll be glad that you're not still sitting in your living room wondering what the atmosphere of the game is like.
