Nevada Possible Bowl Games



With Nevada Wolf Pack out of the BCS race here's the possible bowl games that the WAC has a tie in.

New Mexico Bowl

WAC vs MWC #5. Dec 18th at Albuquerque, New Mexico

The very first bowl game of the year for FBS. This bowl game will put us against a future conference mate. If BYU or Wyoming cant win out this may go to another conference because due to lack of eligible teams.

Hawaii Bowl

WAC/Hawaii vs CUSA #2 or 3 Dec 24th at Hawaii

Because Hawaii is one win away from bowl eligiblity they will go to their own bowl game. No ifs and or but. This will probably be against SMU, ECU, Houston, or UCF.

Humanitarian Bowl

WAC vs MAC #3 Dec 18th at Boise, Idaho

This game is a worst case scenario for Nevada. Against the MAC number 3 team????? YUCK!!!!!!! This can be highly possible if Nevada derails Boise, see Fight Hunger Bowl below for explanation, were gonna have to play in front of a super pissed off Boise crowd and the blue field. Miami(OH), Temple, Western Michigan, Toledo, and Ohio are possible opponents.

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

WAC vs PAC 10 #6 Jan 9th at San Fransisco, California

This is the best game Nevada can get in. As of now the PAC-10 will have enough teams to be eligible. This is the only year WAC will have a tie in until 2014.  If Nevada derails Boise and keeps them out of the BCS there's a big chance that this bowl will choose Boise instead. Washington, Arizona State or a rematch with Cal are the likely teams for this Bowl. This bowl game will choose which team can bring the biggest crowd, even though Reno is alot closer but Boise travels with force.

 

Summary

BENSON!!!!!!! Come on!!!!! Against a MAC #3?????????? The WAC does not place teams based on standings. The Bowl games get to pick any team from the list. The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl gets to pick first and it will be Boise if Boise gets shut out of the BCS. The Humanitarian Bowl gets to pick 2nd which will most likely be Nevada, ugh my chest hurts. The New Mexico Bowl gets last pick.

There is also the rumors going around that there might not be enough bowl eligible teams which Nevada may get in on another bowl. Or a SEC or Big Ten bowl tie in needs to a replacement team that they will invite Boise.

Basically if Nevada loses to Boise we will go to the Fight Hunger bowl. Nevada has to make a choice of losing to Boise and go to a good bowl game or do do what we wanted to do for the last 5 years and beat Boise and go to a bad bowl game in Boise.
