SAN DIEGO, Calif. - After leaving Ogden via a charter airplane at approximately 7 p.m. Sunday evening following weather and flight delays, the majority of Utah State's football team arrived at its team hotel at 8:45 p.m., where they were greeted by representatives from the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
Another flight with the rest of USU's travel party left Salt Lake City later that evening and joined the team in San Diego.
The Aggies are in town to begin preparations for the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, which will be played on Thursday, Dec. 26 at 7:30 p.m. (MT) against 24th-ranked Northern Illinois and televised nationally on ESPN.
