BYU and San Diego State take on each other in the 2012 Poinsettia Bowl.

BYU and San Diego State take on each other in the 2012 Poinsettia Bowl.

The San Diego St. Aztecs will be taking on former conference member BYU Cougars on Thursday night in the 2012 Poinsettia Bowl. The game can be seen on ESPN, or ESPN3D if one so desires, and the game kicks at 8 p.m. ET.

Here is possibly the top reason to watch this game:

As for the play on the field, this should be a defensive game, and if a team scores over 30 points, it would be a shock. San Diego has the home field advantage, and with how much Aztec fans dislike BYU, this crowd should be fierce. Also, lets hope that San Diego State's student section, known as "The Show" comes up big for the Aztecs.

So, why not spend the evening chatting about the game below, it will be AWESOME.
