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.
