San Diego Holiday Bowl

December 29, 2005



The San Diego Holiday Bowl started  in 1978 as a way for the Western Athletic Conference to feature a bowl game with its champion. It's undergone many sponsors including Sea World, Culligan and Plymouth. It's now sponsored by Pacific Life. Since Bringham Young University was the champion of the Western Athletic Conference most years, it became commonly referred to as the BYU Bowl.

The times have changed and so have the conference affiliations. The Holiday Bowl now features the 2nd place PAC10 team and the third place Big 12 team. This year the PAC10 representative is Oregon and the Big 12 representative is Oklahoma. Oregon had a superb year with only one loss, and would have been in contention for a national championship had it not been for USC. Oklahoma had what can kindly be called a rebuilding year for them.

The Holiday Bowl is played  in Qualcomm Stadium, which is also host to the San Diego Chargers. When configured for football, Qualcomm's capacity is over 70,000 fans. The 2005 Holiday Bowl is sold out.


Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade

Game day begins with the Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade. The parade is recognized as "America's Largest Balloon Parade". San Diego residents along with thousands of Pacific Life Holiday Bowl visitors will enjoy massive inflatables, numbering more than any other parade in the nation, colorful floats, unique drill teams, heart-pounding marching bands, and even racing wiener dogs!

See you next year!
