2012 Poinsettia Bowl, SDSU vs. BYU: Teams, TV schedule, location and more

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

It'll be the San Diego State Aztecs and BYU Cougars facing each other in the eighth Poinsettia Bowl.

It's official: we know who will be taking on the BYU Cougars in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 20: the San Diego State Aztecs.

BYU was destined for the game since before the season, assuming they became bowl-eligible. The Army Black Knights have the rights to the game next year, assuming they're bowl-eligible as well.

The Poinsettia Bowl is a relatively young postseason game, with just seven previous matchups. BYU has never appeared in the game and the Aztecs have appeared just once in their home town bowl; a 35-14 win over the Navy Midshipmen in the 2010 edition.
