Week One Bowl Projections

New, 4 comments

There are some noticeable changes in the edition of our bowl projections

NCAA Football: Navy at Hawaii Marco Garcia-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 is a new team in our bowl projections. There is also a team that all of us have removed.

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.

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs. Cal

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. Western Kentucky

New Mexico Bowl: Utah State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: Nevada vs. Western Michigan

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs. Notre Dame

Cactus Bowl: San Diego State vs. Iowa State

Matt: I’m thinking we get 7 teams, just barely. Like, the Fremont Cannon game decides the 7th team barely.

Fiesta Bowl: Fresno State v. TCU

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State v. Arizona

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii v. Middle Tennessee

New Mexico Bowl: Air Force v. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Nevada v. UL-L

Potato Bowl: Wyoming 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 Fresno State and Boise State to beat their Power 5 teams in non-conference before I project either in a NY6 bowl game.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs Colorado

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs North Texas

New Mexico Bowl: Air Force vs Middle Tennessee State

Arizona Bowl: San Diego State vs. New Mexico State

Potato Bowl: Utah State vs. Miami (OH)

Frisco Bowl: Wyoming vs. Tulane

Armed Forces Bowl: Fresno State vs. Memphis

Mike: I’m still going with 6 this week, but I’m changing around a few of teams (for now). Keep in mind I’m not putting a ton of research into the opposing teams this early in the year.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs. Wisconsin

Las Vegas Bowl: Fresno State vs. Cal

Hawaii Bowl: Utah State vs. Western Kentucky

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State vs. Marshall

Arizona Bowl: Hawaii vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Potato Bowl: Nevada vs. Buffalo
