The college bowl season started with a pretty good game between two decent teams on Thursday night in San Diego with the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
Utah did enough to wear down a porous Navy defense and come away with the 35-32 win. But it wasn't without some tense moments late. Utah led 35-25, after a short touchdown run, with just about 1:45 to play. But the Midshipmen did everything they could to make it interesting.
Navy scored on a 65-yard touchdown pass and followed that up by recovering the onside kick. So the Middies had the ball back with just about 1:00 to play and trailing by only a field goal. However, Utah made a game saving interception and came away with the first bowl win of the season.
Florida Atlantic and Memphis are on tap for tonight in the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
