Looking for a way to escape the brutal winter? College football tickets have never been easier to order online, so get away to the always sunny San Diego for the Holiday Bowl! Technically named the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl, this post-season college football clash pits the Pacific Ten Conference (Pac-10) against the Big 12 Conference, for a matchup NCAA fans will love. Get your tickets now and be at Qualcomm Stadium to see the Holiday Bowl live!
The Bridgepoint Holiday Bowl is held at Qualcomm Stadium, home to the NFL's San Diego Chargers, and site of Super Bowls, MLB All-Star Games, two World Series, countless concerts and motorsports events, and since 2005, an additional post-season football tournament, the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
The Holiday Bowl was inaugurated in 1978, with a game in which Navy beat its Western Athletic Conference host BYU, 23-16. Since 1997, the two opponents have been chosen from the Pac-10 and the Big 12. Always a financial success, the $200,000 payouts to each school from the original game have grown past the $2 million mark in recent years.
Some of the festivities leading up to the big game have included events like Team Day at Sea World, Team Day at the San Diego Zoo, a nationally televised 5K run, and 'America's Largest Balloon Parade.' But you will want tickets to the game itself to witness the U.S. Navy Parachute Team and the stirring Holiday Bowl tradition in which a 45,000-square foot American Flag is unfurled to cover the entire football field. Halftime offers marching bands and an amazing fireworks display.
Any excuse can be a good excuse to go to scenic San Diego, California, famous for its pleasant weather all year round, and that includes December.
