A football's distinctive construction allows it to be thrown in a tight spiral, kicked through the uprights, or filled with helium so that it can return to its mother, the blimp overhead. Take possession with this GrouponLive deal to see the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium. For $25, you get one G-Pass for plaza-level seating in sections 23 or 24 on Thursday, December 20, at 5 p.m. (up to a $63.55 value, including all fees). Gates open at 3 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Celebrating its eighth year, the SDCCU Poinsettia Bowl pits a pair of elite teams against each other in an annual postseason contest for gridiron supremacy. For 2012, the Brigham Young University Cougars—provided they amass at least six wins throughout the season—have been guaranteed a spot in the bowl against a top team from the NCAA's Mountain West Conference. BYU's prospects look bright: the team has already kicked off the season with a pair of wins led by quarterback Riley Nelson, who put up 244 yards and a touchdown in the victory against Weber State. Thanks to the high-tech capabilities of Qualcomm Stadium, the home of the NFL's San Diego Chargers, ESPN's cameras will chronicle the entire Poinsettia Bowl from the sidelines, broadcasting each highlight-reel play and secret referee handshake to a national audience.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
