Michael Wilson,

Jeremy goes solo this week to preview the final two Mountain West bowl games which are the Cactus and Arizona Bowls. Baylor vs. Boise State is the first game and the overall theme, in my opinion, is that Baylor is a disorganized mess. They lost their final six games, have a new-ish quarterback, there all-time leading rusher decided to skip the bowl game, a dozen seniors are looking ahead to the NFL and their offensive coordinator just took the same job at Florida Atlantic.

A lot of distractions for Baylor and that could lead to an easy Boise State win.

Air Force is taking on South Alabama in the Arizona Bowl and the Falcons could be distracted for not getting a better opponent, but the Jaguars should not be overlooked. They get up for big games and it shows as they beat San Diego State and Mississippi State. However, they failed to show up in Sun Belt play against the top of the league.

Air Force should be able to run on this Jaguars defense to win, and on defense the Falcons need to be aware of the South Alabama passing attack that has shown signs of being a pretty good unit.
