Week 10 Bowl Projections

New, 4 comments

A surprise loss has us questioning which teams will go bowling

NCAA Football: Fresno State at Air Force Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Week 9 of the college football season is behind us and after some statement wins and losses. Air Force made it clear that they are still a contender in the Mountain division and Fresno State’s bowl hopes are in jeopardy. Let’s take a look at how our team projects things at the moment.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State

Potato Bowl: Utah State

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming

I still think Boise State will get the Cotton Bowl bid if they win out. But I am not confident they can do so. I dropped Fresno State out of my bowl projections and think SJSU might be able to sneak in, but they will have to beat Hawaii, Fresno State, or Boise State. That is a tall task.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State

Biggest update is I dropped Fresno State from a bowl. Although they aren’t officially eliminated yet, they don’t look like a bowl team. Thus the MWC likely only has 6 bowl teams this year. Due to this, I moved the Aztecs into a MWC bowl.

Bruce:

Las Vegas Bowl: Utah State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State

Potato Bowl: Wyoming

Cheez-It Bowl: Fresno State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Cotton Bowl: Boise State

I’ll give Boise State one more chance for the Cotton Bowl. If they lose in any game towards the end of the regular season, I’ll take them out of the Cotton Bowl conversation. As for Fresno State, same thing like Boise State by giving them one more chance. But if they lose multiple games toward the end of November, they can be ending their season earlier than expected. That’s means no Bowl season for those Bulldogs if they keep on losing.

I am keeping my projections the same from last week, but I an keeping my eye on a few teams. The middle of the West division will be interesting with Fresno State, San Jose State, and UNR. I thought Fresno State would be a shoe-in for a bowl game at the beginning of the year, but they have a rough end to their schedule. Both San Jose State and UNR have a solid shot of taking over the Bulldogs’ spot in a bowl game.
