The Poinsettia Bowl announced on Wednesday who will be playing in its bowl game for the next six years, between 2014-19. The Mountain West will be a staple for the entire run, but the opponents will be a mixture of various independents and the MAC.
Here is the rundown of matchups for the next six years:
2014 - MW vs. Navy
2015 - MW vs. Army
2016 - MW vs. BYU
2017 - MW vs. MAC
2018 - MW vs. BYU
2019 - MW vs. MAC
Originally BYU was to play in 2015 but the bowl made the change to put Army in that slot and then place BYU back in San Diego for the 2016 and 2018 seasons. The Mountain West spot is likely to still be the leagues second bowl slot just behind the Las Vegas Bowl.
This years matchup the Mountain West will be going up against Army if they can become bowl eligible.
