The Mountain West will have seven bowl-eligible teams and they all should go bowling once games are announced later this week and on Sunday.

UNLV has a shot to go bowling with five wins due to having the second-highest APR among teams with five wins. They are trailing only the Rice Owls but they also are 5-7.

A few bowl projection outlets have included UNLV but we are going to hold off on including the Rebels in these final regular season rankings. Obviously, we are rooting for UNLV to go bowling.

The Mountain West will have seven bowl eligible teams and history points to all teams earning a spot in the postseason. Utah State became bowl eligible with an upset win over San Jose State.

UNLV dropped a game at Hawaii and can’t get to six wins to become bowl eligible which is a disappointment after a 4-1 start. The best they can do is 5-7.

Welcome to the bowling club Air Force and San Jose State. The conference now has four bowl-eligible teams with Wyoming and Boise State. We still predict seven teams to go bowling with UNLV, Fresno State, and San Diego State.

Utah State is at 4-5 with three games left against Hawaii, on the road, then host San Jose State, and at Boise State. That is a tough stretch and ESPN’s FPI gives the Aggies a 27.8% chance to get to six wins. Utah State fans will take it after the loss to Weber State and injuries at the quarterback position.

[mm-video type=playlist id=01fb7dafw2b08817yr player_id=none image=https://mwwire.com/wp-content/plugins/mm-video/images/playlist-icon.png]

Boise State and Wyoming are the first two teams from the Mountain West to earn their six wins to become bowl eligible. Then there is Air Force and San Jose State are next in line with five wins.

Fresno State is looking more and more like a lock with four wins and now has Jake Haener back in the lineup after missing time while injured. It seems like a formality they will get to six.

UNLV also has four wins and with quarterback Doug Brumfield now back in the fold at practice and that will go a long way in getting the Rebels closer to bowl eligibility.

San Diego State is close is well with four wins but they have a tough schedule the rest of the way with games but three are at home vs. UNLV, Air Force and San Jose State. Then they have New Mexico on the road.

A fifth win seems for sure and the game vs. the Rebels this week depends if UNLV gets Brumfield back. If the QB is out then expect the Aztecs to get the win.

The Mountain West top to bottom is shaking out mostly for how we thought it would be. Boise State is leading the Mountain Division with San Diego State and Fresno State in the running for the West Division.

The overall records may not be great, especially for the Bulldogs and Aztecs, but they are the frontrunners are projected.

All signs point to UNLV making a bowl game this year and it would be the first time in almost a decade they’d go to the post season. San Jose State could win the league, and it is looking more and more likely that the conference could have seven teams go bowling. There are three teams with five victories and three with four. Fresno State is looking more like a bowl game but they are just 3-4 at the moment.

Week 6 is over and the league is sort of starting to take shape. We have San Jose doing quite well through the league, Boise State rebounding after a slow start, UNLV is surprising, despite its loss, and Fresno State really needs Jake Haener back.

The bowl projections have been slowly changing but this week has a few new wrinkles with Utah State playing better and clearly on the bowl radar despite being 2-4. It will take a great second half run to get to six wins.

What a crazy week in the Mountain West. Teams that have been bad are now good: Looking at UNLV. Plus, vice versa: Boise State.

This will make for an interesting Mountain West season with possibly no elite teams but a bunch of good ones and everyone beats each other up.

So, in our five-word recap, it will be quite interesting to read what fans say and react week to week.

Before we get to ours, here are how fans responded.

 

Air Force: Hello there, John Eldridge III

Boise State: No longer a feared team

Colorado State: Norvell has work to do

Fresno State: Can’t lose on a bye

Hawaii: Warriors got a passing TD!

Nevada: They might have a QB?

New Mexico: It’s OK, that’s just LSU

San Diego State: No more Braxton Burmeister, please

San Jose State: Are these the 2020 Spartans?

UNLV: Best team in the league?

Utah State: Is this Brent Guy’s Aggies?

Wyoming: Third quarter did them in

Week 0 had just a handful of games so this first half-baked bowl projections will be just that, throwing stuff against the wall.

It is now magazine and preview season which includes many things such as predicting bowl games. The latest projection comes from Jerry Palm and CBS Sports.

2022 Mountain West Football Bowl Projections

The eight teams that are chosen for a bowl game are Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Utah State, San Jose State, Fresno State, Wyoming, and San Diego State.

Palm is by far and away the most optimistic about the Mountain West going bowling with those eight teams. The teams that are a bit of a surprise are the Front Range schools in Wyoming and Colorado State, and to a lesser degree San Jose State.

If the Mountain West can have those eight teams in a bowl season it bodes well for the league that has a few changes with talent and coaching changing programs.

It is now magazine and preview season which includes among many things: bowl projections. So, before we get to our own preseason bowl guesses because in June that is what these really are, but fun regardless.

One of our USA TODAY partners is College Football News and we will go through their bowl projections for the Mountain West for this upcoming season.

2022 Mountain West Bowl Tie Ins, Lineup

The teams that are chosen for a bowl game are Air Force, Boise State, Utah State, Colorado State, Fresno State, and San Diego State.

It is a little bit shocking that Wyoming is left out of the bowl projections as they have always been a consistent team to go to the post season. They are losing some offense and a lot of players to the transfer portal this past offseason, plus a few defenders are now in the NFL.

Also, no San Jose State likely means in their thinking that Brent Brennan won’t have a bounce-back year to go bowling after a 2021 season that saw injuries to its quarterback and a defense that took a step back.

On the flip side, Jay Norvell is getting a lot of credit as Colorado State’s next head coach by coming over from Nevada would. be a nice surprise for Rams fans. Colorado State was actually close to a bowl game last year with a few bad hiccups under Steve Addazio.

Norvell is a coaching upgrade so combine that with the talent already in Fort Collins plus the Nevada players going West, this team has a good shot at going to a bowl game.
