Bowl Projections: Week Six

New, 23 comments

Some major changes for the Vegas Bowl

NCAA Football: Fresno State at UCLA Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Each week members of the Mountain West Connection team will be completing bowl projections. With the lack of bowl tie-ins for the Mountain West, some of these bowl projections required quite a bit of research. We will start with the obvious Mountain West tie-ins and then things get interesting.

Zach: It’s starting to look like the Mountain West might only get five teams, but I am sticking with six for this week.

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs. Arizona State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. Western Kentucky

New Mexico Bowl: Utah State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Nevada vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: San Diego State vs. Western Michigan

Cactus Bowl: Boise State vs. Iowa State

Matt: Sticking with 6, but this whole thing is a mess

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State v. Stanford

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii v. Memphis

New Mexico Bowl: SDSU v. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Nevada v. Coastal Carolina

Potato Bowl: Utah State v. Buffalo

Cactus Bowl: Boise State v. Baylor

FatDuckUW: I’m still sticking with the projection of a 7th bowl game for the MWC with the Frisco Bowl. I think Air Force could fall there if the Falcons finish 6-6. Consider this to be a very optimistic projection for the MWC.

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs Colorado

Cheeze-It Bowl: San Diego State vs Iowa State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs North Texas

Potato Bowl: Boise State vs Eastern Michigan

New Mexico Bowl: Utah State vs Middle Tennessee State

Arizona Bowl: Nevada vs Arkansas State

Frisco Bowl: Air Force vs Memphis

Mike: Keep in mind, I do projections as if the season ended today (or Sunday). Giving UNLV’s loss to New Mexico, I’m dropping them out for now. Will they be back in next week? Who knows. Right now, Nevada enters as my 6th team, but they are on the bubble as well. I really thought about just going with 5 teams.

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs. Colorado

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. Cincinnati

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Nevada vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: Utah State vs. Eastern Michigan

Catcus/Whatever Bowl: Boise State: some low level Big 12 team
