Week 2 Mountain West Bowl Projections

By

So… Week 2, yeah. Utah State was crushed by Weber State and Incarnate Word did its offensive thing against Nevada to get a big win. Air Force showed it is above the rest of the league, Boise State bounced back with a good enough win over New Mexico, and Fresno State came up short vs. Oregon State.

This week’s bowl predictions do have some changes with a few of these losses, and it includes removing Nevada after its one-week entrance to the bowling club for the 2022 season.

San Jose State re-enters the fold after a solid performance against Auburn where they were close to pulling off a road SEC upset.

Wyoming at 2-1 could be close but looking ahead to its next stretch of schedule makes it difficult to make them the seventh Mountain West team to go bowling. They face Air Force and BYU then also San Jose State which is still in a wait-and-see how good they really are.
