Mountain West Bowl Projections After Week 8
We are getting closer to teams getting bowl eligibility
Clarity is happening
The Mountain West top to bottom is shaking out mostly for how we thought it would be. Boise State is leading the Mountain Division with San Diego State and Fresno State in the running for the West Division.
The overall records may not be great, especially for the Bulldogs and Aztecs, but they are the frontrunners are projected.
All signs point to UNLV making a bowl game this year and it would be the first time in almost a decade they’d go to the post season. San Jose State could win the league, and it is looking more and more likely that the conference could have seven teams go bowling. There are three teams with five victories and three with four. Fresno State is looking more like a bowl game but they are just 3-4 at the moment.
