Even the Prez Had Poinsettia Bowl Fever

The bowl season kicked off Thursday night in San Diego and our friends from Image of Sport were on hand to chronicle all the action. Also in attendance was President Bush, or at least a cardboard cutout of him, which was paraded among the Midshipmen.
Utah linebacker Joe Jiannoni celebrated after a fumble recovery in the first quarter of the Utes' 35-32 victory. There was a rather controversial call late in this game that went against Navy and afterward officials conceded the call was incorrect.
That's Utah coach Kyle Whittingham holding the hardware after his team won its seventh bowl in a row. Navy fullback Eric Kettani rumbles for a 43-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
Utah defensive end Alex Puccinelli is ready to strike up the band after the game. Offensive lineman Zane Beadles, below, accepts congratulations from fans. You can view all of Image of Sports gallery from the Poinsettia Bowl by clicking here. You'll be seeing more of their outstanding work during the bowl season.
And it wouldn't be complete without the front pages from the Deseret Morning News and Salt Lake Tribune, sent to us by Adam!
