Week Two Bowl Projections

The Rebels and Aggies gain some ground

NCAA Football: Utah State at Michigan State Mike Carter-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.

You will notice there are quite a few changes this week.

Zach: I am assuming the conference has seven bowl eligible teams. I think the number could be as low as five and as high as eight. If there are eight bowl eligible teams, the conference needs to hope there are some empty spots or a few teams could be left home. This week I added UNLV and Colorado State. I subtracted Wyoming and Nevada.

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs. Cal

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. Western Kentucky

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Colorado State vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: UNLV vs. Western Michigan

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs. Notre Dame

Cactus Bowl: Utah State vs. Iowa State

Matt: Back to 6 bowl teams with Fresno State’s loss to Minnesota, and UNLV subbing in for Nevada. USU joins us instead of Wyo

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State v. Arizona

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii v. Middle Tennessee

New Mexico Bowl: Fresno State v. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: UNLV v. UL-L

Potato Bowl: Utah State v. Buffalo

Heart of Dallas Bowl: San Diego State v. Nebraska

FatDuckUW: I’m currently projecting seven bowl teams. For now, I’m waiting for Boise State to beat Oklahoma State before I project them in a NY6 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: Air Force vs Middle Tennessee State

Arizona Bowl: San Diego State vs UL-Monroe

Potato Bowl: Utah State vs Miami (OH)

Frisco Bowl: Wyoming vs Tulane

Mike: Things are looking a bit more dicey. SDSU and Fresno State look a bit more vulnerable with some big injuries. Wyoming is fading, but Utah State is trending upward. (Again, pay more attention to the MWC side of things than the opponent side.
