SB Nation Bracketology: Only two Mountain West teams make initial field

San Diego State and New Mexico are the only teams that are projected in SB Nation's initial field of 68.

SB Nation's bracket guru Chris Dobbertean released his initial field of 68 teams, and only San Diego State and UNLV make it in the bracket. That seems a bit odd, as New Mexico and Colorado State have a real good shot of earning a third, and just maybe a fourth team.

Dobbertean does have Colorado State as the first team out, New Mexico is the sixth team out and Nevada is getting some consideration.

UNLV is projected as the league winner and earning a fifth seed where they would take on Arkansas or St. Joseph's. Then San Diego State is also a fifth seed playing a 12-seeded BYU, but it will be in Salt Lake City.
