Final Mountain West Football Bowl Projections
Every team is going bowling
Eight Mountain West teams
Every single Mountain West team that has six wins is going bowling and that includes the Hawaii Warriors that finished 6-7. The Warriors will be staying home and play in the Hawaii Bowl and get a solid opponent in Memphis.
The reason that Hawaii is going to be in a bowl game is that the NCAA created a last-minute bowl to allow every bowl-eligible team to get to participate in a bowl game
For the Mountain West, that means there will be eight teams in the post season and that will be a record number of teams that are going to a bowl game from the conference.
With Utah State winning the Mountain West title they are all but assured to b going to the Jimmy Kimmel Bowl.
