Bowl Predictions: Week 4. 8 different teams get a vote, 1 team is unanimously Guaranteed.

NCAA Football: UNLV at Fresno State Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The 2021 season is here and 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.

Los Angeles Bowl: Fresno State

Hawaii Bowl: Nevada

New Mexico Bowl: Air Force

Potato Bowl: San Jose State

Arizona Bowl: Boise State

Guaranteed Rate Bowl: San Diego State

I only made one change in my predictions this week, swapping Boise State for Utah State (which a certain equipment manager won’t be happy about I’m sure). After the Broncos beat the Aggies, it was an easy decision. The Aggies are my “next team in” and could appear again as SJSU may be scuffling without their star quarterback. Some people may have Wyoming in a bowl and they probably will, but I’m expecting them to struggle once conference play begins and want to see what they look like against Air Force before putting them in a bowl.

Unless the Broncos really pull it together, they should consider staying home. Right now, Fresno is the best team in the league, but they can’t afford another performance like Friday.

NY6 Bowl: Fresno State

I still get the feeling that the MWC is going to get eight bowl-eligible teams. Maybe a San Jose State or New Mexico. And I like Fresno State to run the table and get past an AAC team for the NY6.
