Six wins will get Navy invited to Poinsettia Bowl

SAN DIEGO -- Navy will return to the Poinsettia Bowl if it
wins at least six games this season.

If eligible, Navy would play the second selection from the
Mountain West Conference. The date for this year's game hasn't been
set, although it will be played before Christmas.

Last season, Navy cut a similar, one-year deal with the Meineke
Car Care Bowl. Navy earned a bowl bid for the fourth consecutive
season and lost 25-24 to Boston College.

The Midshipmen played in the inaugural Poinsettia Bowl in San
Diego two years ago, and beat Colorado State 51-30.

The Poinsettia Bowl is sponsored by the San Diego County Credit
Union.
