The Poinsettia Bowl is a post-season NCAA-sanctioned Football Bowl Subdivision college football bowl game, re-created and played for the first time since 1955 in 2005 by the organizers of the Holiday Bowl. The Poinsettia Bowl is played in late-December each year at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California. The game is currently sponsored by the San Diego County Credit Union, and is therefore named the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. The Mountain West Conference team placing second in the conference receives a reserved invitation to this bowl through the 2014 season, and the Army Black Knights are guaranteed a spot in 2013 if Army earns bowl eligibility, requiring a regular season winning percentage of .500 or better.
A religious war (or "Holy War", Latin bellum sacrum) is a war caused by, or justified by, differences in religion.
The European wars of religion of the 16th and 17th centuries are the classical example, often referred to simply as "the wars of religion". Earlier (medieval) wars also frequently cited as "religious wars" include the Muslim conquests (7th to 19th centuries) and the Christian military excursions against the Muslim conquests, including the Crusades (11th to 13th centuries), the Spanish Reconquista (8th to 15th centuries) and the Ottoman wars in Europe (15th to 19th centuries).
