NCAA Football: Nevada at California Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

The 2021 season is here, with all 12 teams now having played. Our team at Mountain West Connection will be releasing our bowl projections each week. For now, we will only be projecting Mountain West teams and what bowl game we think they will end up in. As the season progresses, we may add opponents. See below for this week’s predictions and be sure to join the discussion by posting your own in the comments section.

I am keeping my picks from last week. Nevada is still getting it done, although getting off to slow starts. Boise State looked closer to the team that they are. Fresno State deserves better than their bowl slot and I want to move them somewhere else, so be on the lookout for that. Air Force could be swapped out for Wyoming or I suppose Utah State for now, but I think the Falcons look most consistent for now.

I think Utah State gets to six wins and Wyoming has a good shot to get there too. Finding a place to put them is tough and we are already down a few bowl games. There is a good chance someone will be on the outside looking in.
