The Utes are Golden! Well their bowl game is in the Golden State anyway against the Golden Bears of Cal.
It appears the Utes will indeed be playing in the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl (say that three times fast). Utah last played in the Poinsettia Bowl back in 2007 - a victory over Navy. I actually like this match up because the Utes haven't played Cal since 2003 and it offers up a good opportunity to play a decent, though stagnating, Pac-Ten opponent.
The other big news, of course, is the fact TCU will be playing Boise State in the Fiesta. It's a sham. However, I can't think of a better deserving team than the Frogs after hearing Gary Patterson endorse the current bowl system. You reap what you sow, as they say.
Bowl season is here! It's like crack...but healthy!
