The Poinsettia Bowl Is Being Terminated

We have lost a bowl game.

The San Diego Bowl Game Association announced today the termination of one of its two bowl games.

The Poinsettia Bowl is no more.

From their release:

The San Diego Bowl Game Association board of directors voted to amend its focus and produce just one post-season college football game in 2017: The Holiday Bowl. The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl played its final game in 2016 after a 12-year run.

“College football and the bowl game structure has gone through major changes through the years and our board feels the time is right to focus our efforts on one post-season game,” said Mark Neville, executive director of the San Diego Bowl Game Association. “The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl staged exciting match-ups for more than a decade and we were one of the few cities to host two bowl games.”

Farewell, Poinsettia Bowl.
