Week 9 Bowl Projections

Fresno State Sits alone atop the West, but a team from the Mountain is challenging for the top spot

NCAA Football: Boise State at Air Force Isaiah J. Downing-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: Fresno State continues to look like the strongest team in the conference and USU bounces back in to the two spot. I came really close to putting the Bulldogs in the Fiesta. Unfortunately, UCF doesn’t have much competition in the AAC. Remember, this is how I think the season will end.
