Day 1 of the Long March: Poinsettia Bowl open chat
by Bob Timmermann
I really don't expect much chatting, but since I have little to write about this time of year, I am going to post a chat thread for all 32 college football bowl games (days with multiple games will get one thread). Why? I do not know. Perhaps because it is there. Once I used to make it a goal to see at least one minute of each bowl game just because I do things like that. But now that some games are on the NFL Network that will never happen. And some days I will actually go out and socialize with people over the holidays.
But for tonight, enjoy Utah (8-4) versus Navy (8-4) in the Poinsettia Bowl at 6 pm PT from San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium. It's the first ever meeting between the Utes and the Midshipmen.
Utah has won its last six bowl appearances defeating Fresno State, USC, Southern Mississippi, Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech, and Tulsa. Navy's lost last bowl victory was in this game in 2005 against Colorado State.
