Week Five Bowl Projections

The picture is slowly getting clearer

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: Week five left us with a clear idea of who the best teams in the conference are. Unfortunately, the bowl tie-ins are quite underwhelming.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs. Colorado

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: Fresno State vs. Iowa State

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

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State v. Arizona State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii v. Cincinnati

New Mexico Bowl: Fresno State v. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Nevada v. Coastal Carolina

Potato Bowl: Utah State v. Buffalo

Cactus Bowl: San Diego State v. Baylor

FatDuckUW: I’m still sticking with the projection of a 7th bowl game for the MWC with the Frisco Bowl. Also, I’m stubbornly sticking with/hoping for Wyoming in a bowl game.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs Colorado

Armed Forces Bowl: Fresno State vs Memphis

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs North Texas

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State vs Middle Tennessee State

Potato Bowl: Utah State vs Eastern Michigan

Arizona Bowl: Nevada vs Georgia Southern

Frisco Bowl: Wyoming vs Navy

Mike: I’m sticking with my picks from last week. I clearly think these are the six best teams in the MWC right now. UNLV is on the least firm ground, but even so, it’s getting more stable week after week. But with half the teams winning last week and the other half on byes, hard to make any movement on projections. As usual, don’t pay attention to opponents here.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs. Colorado

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. Cincinnati

New Mexico Bowl: Fresno State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: UNLV vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: Utah State vs. Eastern Michigan

Whatever Bowl the MWC steals from someone else: SDSU vs somebody
