Bowl projection season is here

It is now magazine and preview season which includes many things such as predicting bowl games. The latest projection comes from Jerry Palm and CBS Sports.

2022 Mountain West Football Bowl Projections

The eight teams that are chosen for a bowl game are Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Utah State, San Jose State, Fresno State, Wyoming, and San Diego State.

Palm is by far and away the most optimistic about the Mountain West going bowling with those eight teams. The teams that are a bit of a surprise are the Front Range schools in Wyoming and Colorado State, and to a lesser degree San Jose State.

If the Mountain West can have those eight teams in a bowl season it bodes well for the league that has a few changes with talent and coaching changing programs.
