2011 Poinsettia Bowl – Texas Christian & Louisiana Tech, Dec 21
Are you fond of football bowl games? 7 days from today will be an action-packed day as the much-awaited Poinsettia Bowl will take place on 21st December at 5 p.m. at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. On this day, the TCU Horned Frogs from the Mountain West Conference will clash head to head against the Western Athletic Conference (WAC), Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will be making their first bowl appearance since 2008.
Presented by the San Diego County Credit Union, the Poinsettia Bowl is taking place for the seventh year in a row. The game will be telecast on ESPN. But what is the fun of watching it on television? Instead be a part of the madness, cheer your team and have fun. The event will kick off with a parade of marching bands, and children from the Make-a-Wish Foundation will sing the national anthem.
