Bowl projection season is here

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.
