SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The Poinsettia Bowl has agreed to deals that will put teams from the Mountain West Conference and the Western Athletic Conference, along with Army and Navy, in the December game from 2010-2013.
The four-year deal with the MWC extends the conference's tie-in with the Poinsettia Bowl. The game will have the second pick of teams from the Mountain West Conference after the Las Vegas Bowl has selected.
Navy, if it's bowl eligible, will play in the 2010 Poinsettia Bowl. Army, if it's bowl eligible, will play in the 2013 game at Qualcomm Stadium, the home of the NFL's San Diego Chargers.
The WAC will send a team to the Poinsettia bowl in 2011 and 2012, and will provide a replacement team if Navy and Army are not eligible in 2010 and '13.
