Know The Bowl: San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl

Get to know BYU's bowl destination.

With BYU's first-ever appearance in the Poinsettia Bowl approaching, here are some quick facts on the bowl and its history.

Debut: 2005
The Poinsettia Bowl was created as a sister bowl to the Holiday Bowl and is operated by the same group (the San Diego Bowl Game Association). With the proliferation of bowl games and with nearly every bowl-eligible team playing in the post season, the idea was, in part, to give San Diego State a home bowl similar to what Hawaii enjoys as the Holiday Bowl is locked into contracts with more interesting conference partners.

Payout: $500,000 per team
