Qualcomm Stadium: Good for great college bowl games

Qualcomm Stadium isn’t good enough for the Chargers.

What is it good for?

How about two of the best non-BCS football games this college postseason?

The Pacific Life Holiday Bowl has a great match-up Dec. 27 with No. 12 Arizona State (10-2) vs. No. 17 Texas (9-3).

ASU would have been in a BCS game had Hawaii not made a late comeback to beat Washington last Saturday.

Texas was the national champion two years ago and is still considered among the top names in college football.

As for the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, the Navy (8-4) vs. Utah (8-4) contest Dec. 20 is as good as it gets before Christmas.

Navy is always a great draw in a military town like San Diego, and it has a very formidable team.

Utah, three years removed from a BCS game, scored a 44-6 victory this season over a UCLA team which was in the Rose Bowl hunt until last weekend.

No matter what you say about Qualcomm Stadium, it’s still adequate enough for two of the top bowl games in America.
