Let’s see what the team thinks.

NCAA Football: Wyoming at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

What a week of college football! Boise State took a tumble, while San Diego State looks to be the favorite in the West. Let’s take a look on how our team projects the Mountain West Bowl picture.

Zach:

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: Wyoming

Potato Bowl: Utah State

Arizona Bowl: Fresno State

Cheez-it Bowl: San Diego State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Some big changes this week, no Mountain West team in the NY6 would be a major hit for the Mountain West. Best case scenario, Boise State and San Diego State win out and face each other in the Mountain West Championship. I think the other Group of Five contenders could all lose another game. But for now, the Mountain West misses out yet again.

New Mexico Bowl: Fresno State

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming

Cheez-It Bowl: San Diego State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Mike: Some changes this week for me. The BSU loss obviously knocks them out of the Cotton Bowl, but still think they go to Vegas. SDSU, the other top team, finds a good bowl matchup thanks to an ESPN trade. I still have doubts about the Bulldogs making a bowl, but I’m not going to leave them out after winning two in a row.

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State

Cotton Bowl: Boise State

A few changes in the lineup after a crazy mid-October weekend. But Boise State’s shocking loss put a big dent on their cotton bowl dreams after the loss to BYU. They will need to win all of their games for the rest of their season to keep in pace to their goal of getting to Dallas by the end of December.

Frisco Bowl: Wyoming

Well, the bowl picture is much bleaker if no Cotton Bowl. I’m still projecting 7 bowl teams, but I’m not expecting the conference to steal any bigger bowl games.

Alex: Boise State losing dropped them out of the Cotton Bowl, for the time being, and dropped UNR out of a bowl spot. With the season winding down, there is still plenty of time left for UNR to get their way back in a bowl spot. And the Broncos are not out not out of the conversation of getting to a New Year’s Six. Also, watch out for San Diego State (my preseason pick to win the conference), they are playing good football at the right time.
