NCAA Football Bowl Projections: Navy Will Play San Diego St. In The Poinsettia Bowl

As we get closer and closer to the end of the year, the NCAA football football bowl picture is becoming a little clearer. We still don't know which bowl the Terps will be going to, but we now know where, and against whom, the Naval Academy will be playing their bowl game.

According to Gene Wang of the Washington Post, the Naval academy will face San Diego St. in the Poinsettia Bowl (my favorite bowl game name) on Dec. 23rd. Here's a little bit more on the Aztecs:

San Diego State provides yet another high-powered passing attack to challenge the Navy defense. Quarterback Ryan Lindley is sixth in the country with 3,554 passing yards and 26 touchdowns, and the Aztecs also have a pair of 1,000-yard wide receivers in Vincent Brown and DeMarco Sampson.

I don't think that the Naval Academy had the type of season that many were expecting them to have at the beginning of the year, but just making it to a bowl game is a good accomplishment for them, and good exposure for the program.
