NCAA Football: Idaho Potato Bowl-Ohio vs Nevada Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Friday, or game-week eve for Mountain West football! Check out what’s on today’s slate of links and original content.

Nevada’s position by position preview.

Let’s let the post do the talking here. If you want to know about Nevada, this the post you need to read. Murray thinks both teams are pretty even.

Boise State advantage negated?

Boise State boasts one of the best home field advantages in the country. But in 2020, all of that is thrown out the window. Specifically, the Broncos have led the nation in forcing false start penalties during home games the past two seasons. Their two season total was 48, and they averaged 3.43 per game.

Holiday Bowl cancelled.

The NCAA previously announced that all teams would be bowl eligible this season. However, the bowls seem to be fighting back against that by cancelling them. The Holiday Bowl joins the Hawaii and Bahamas Bowls by announcing they will not host a game this season. While this doesn’t impact the Mountain West directly, it does take place in San Diego.

The Mountain West finalizes it’s Covid cancellation protocols.
