Now that the bowl lineups have been announced, College Football News takes a first stab at early predictions.
The coaching dominos started last week with UNLV letting go of Head Coach Marcus Arroyo, but those dominos are not falling for just head coaches. Word out of Boise is that one of their staff is going back to his alma mater.
Here’s an update on the UNLV head coaching position. Don’t know who these “sources” are, surprised Urban Meyer not added to this list if one is shooting for the moon.

Kudos to New Mexico MBB Head Coach...
Maybe caught looking ahead to their game with in-state rival Colorado, the Rams could not stop Northern Colorado from scoring in an upset loss.
