LA Bowl: UNLV

Hawaii Bowl: Boise State

New Mexico Bowl: Fresno State

Potato Bowl: San Jose State

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming

Armed Forces Bowl: Air Force

Other Bowl (TBD): Utah State

The Mountain West will end with 7 bowl teams thanks to Utah State. Obviously the winner of the championship game will go to the LA Bowl, and I’m keeping UNLV in that spot for now. If Boise State loses, I think they go to the Hawaii Bowl, but if UNLV loses, I bet they are matched up in another ESPN Bowl. The G-Rate Bowl doesn’t look like an option this season, so it’s likely the conference only gets one P5 matchup, which is disappointing, Fresno State will be the team who likely deserves a better fate, but others on this list could say the same. It will be intersting to see how marketable some Mountain West teams are this bowl season, but I’m guess the answer is not very.

Wow! What a wild final weekend. I have the Broncos ediging out the Rebels for a conference championship. UNLV and Air Force will get quality bowl games because of their solid seasons.
