The TCU Horned Frogs will slip from a potential BCS bid all the way to the 2011 Poinsettia Bowl, and Louisiana Tech will be their foe in San Diego. Just in case you weren't aware that the Poinsettia Bowl was played in San Diego, the sponsor is the San Diego County Credit Union. Now that's targeting your demo.
Joe Tessitore, Lou Holtz and Mark May will announce the game on ESPN on Wednesday, December 21 at 8:00 p.m. The game's tie-in's rotate with this year's game featuring the No. 2 team from the Mountain West against a WAC opponent.
Navy has played in the most Poinsettia Bowls with three while TCU and Utah have played twice. Last year's game, which saw San Diego State beat Navy, was the highest attended Poinsettia Bowl game with 48,049 in attendance.
