The latest bowl projections are getting a shakeup after Boise State dropped its game against Oklahoma State which drops them from the New Year’s Six bowl spot, for the time being.

There is a ton of football left which is what was discussed at the end of the Week 3 podcast recap. That goes for Fresno State and San Diego State who each had solid wins over the weekend against Pac-12 teams.

The number of bowl teams this week will still be six with Boise State, Fresno State, San Diego State, Hawaii, UNLV and Utah State.
