Final Mountain West Football Bowl Projections

New, 9 comments

What a game last night in the Big XII title game.  TCU was less then a foot away from playing in Pasadena, but since that is not the case here are my bowl projections and the official announcement will be announced later this evening on Fox and ESPN at 8pm est.

New Mexico Bowl

Wyoming Cowboys (6-6) vs. Fresno State Bulldogs (8-4)

Armed Forces Bowl

Air Force  Falcons (7-5) vs. Southern Miss Golden Eagles (7-5)

Las Vegas Bowl

BYU Cougars (10-2) vs. USC Trojans (8-4)

Poinsettia Bowl

Utah Utes (9-3) vs. Cal Golden Bears (8-4)

Sugar Bowl

TCU Horned Frogs (12-0) vs. Florida Gators (12-1)

There you have it, so lets see if these are correct.  I have a hard time seeing USC fall that far, but their loss to Arizona puts them there because Stanford will go to the local Emerald Bowl and unless the Sun Bow takes USC they are headed to Vegas.

Below the jump are the last of the 'expert' picks

Fiesta Bowl TCU versus Boise State
Orange Bowl Ga. Tech versus Iowa
Sugar Bowl Florida versus Cincinnati

 

I still do not see the Fiesta wanting that low of a bowl selection, plus the Fiesta gets to pick after the Sugar Bowl replacement and a Big 10 school is a near guarantee ratings boost.  Plus, Boise State and TCU played last year in the Poinsettia Bowl.
