College football bowl games: Mountain West sends seven teams to bowl games

Highlighted by Boise State playing Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl.

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

The dust is finally settling on this hectic day of college football, and it's now clear that the Mountain West will send seven teams to bowl games. Six MW teams played in a bowl game last year.

As the Mountain Division was clearly the better of the two divisions during the regular season, it's fitting that four of the seven bids were given to Mountain teams.
