Week 1 Mountain West Bowl Projections
Teams have played games does it matter, yet?
Who is going to the postseason?
After just one week of Mountain West play the bowl scenarios are still hard to peg down, which makes sense. A team that is on the rise that could make a move is Utah State after their upset win over Washington State but with the Aggies having one of the better wins of the weekend they earn a slot this week.
With the Aggies moving into bowl position it means a team has to be removed and that team is going to be Wyoming as they struggled against Montana State of the FCS with a three-point victory.
Nevada gets a bump with a win while Boise State drops with their loss and we are no longer exclusively looking at preseason projections from our staff or the media picks.
Again, these are basically wild speculation after just one full week of Mountain West football. Also, there are six bowl options and maybe more but the extra spots will be looked at later in the year once it is known if conferences can’t meet their requirements.
