Bowl Projections: Week 14

New, 15 comments

Boise State and Hawaii secure the top spots in their divisions. Does it impact their bowl destination?

NCAA Football: Hawaii at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

We are heading into out final week of the regular season and we know what teams will be bowling for the Mountain West. However, their are still some questions as to where these teams will land with seven teams being bowl eligible and the Mountain West only having five bowl tie-ins. Let’s take a looks at how our team sees things finishing up.

Zach:

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. BYU

New Mexico Bowl: Wyoming

Potato Bowl: Nevada

Arizona Bowl: San Diego State

Cheez-It Bowl: Utah State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Nothing changes on my bowl projections. I think Boise State made a statement and will likely get more consideration from the playoff committee. I think Bronco fans should be rooting for Cincinnati over Memphis and Navy over Cincinnati in the AAC Championship game.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State

Potato Bowl: Utah State

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming

Cure Bowl: Nevada

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Well, we know the teams that will/should go bowling. The only question is who plays where. I think the MWC will get the Cure Bowl (or maybe the Frisco Bowl again) rather than the Cheez-It Bowl.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. BYU

New Mexico Bowl: Wyoming

Potato Bowl: San Diego State

Arizona Bowl: Nevada

Cheez-It Bowl: Utah State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Air Force deserves a better fate than the Armed Forced bowl probably, especially if they win again next week. I could see them being an attractive team for ESPN to make a trade. I went back and forth between Wyoming and Utah State for an at-large bowl, but figured the draft status of Jordan Love was a selling point. Still think Hawaii is traded into the Hawaii Bowl.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii

New Mexico Bowl: Wyoming

Potato Bowl: Nevada

Arizona Bowl: Utah State

Cheez-It Bowl: San Diego State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Not a lot of changes from last week’s lineup. But Utah State really disappointed me on their performance against Boise State. Boise State may not go to the Cotton Bowl, but they made a huge statement to stay alive in the Las Vegas Bowl conversations.

Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State

Hawaii Bowl: Hawaii vs. BYU

New Mexico Bowl: Nevada

Potato Bowl: Utah State

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming

Cheez-It Bowl: San Diego State

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

There are not many changes from my projections last week. The only significant change is that I moved San Diego State back to the Cheez-it Bowl and I put Wyoming in the Arizona Bowl. There are plenty of interesting games this week, even though the conference championship game is set, that will impact which bowl game these teams will go to.
