We welcome Nevada this week

This week of still way-too-early bowl projections welcomes the Nevada Wolf Pack to the fold after it won its first road conference game in about two years for its third win of the year. The victory over Air Force is huge if the Wolf Pack are going to go to the postseason and get six wins on the year.

This now means that the Mountain West could get to seven teams and there is a chance that all seven can get to a bowl game even if a team from the conference earns a spot in the New Year’s Six Bowl game.
