Week 9 Mountain West Bowl Projections

We have some bowl-eligible teams

Contact/Follow @JeremyMauss & @MWCwire

At least two teams are going bowling

Boise State and Wyoming are the first two teams from the Mountain West to earn their six wins to become bowl eligible. Then there is Air Force and San Jose State are next in line with five wins.

Fresno State is looking more and more like a lock with four wins and now has Jake Haener back in the lineup after missing time while injured. It seems like a formality they will get to six.

UNLV also has four wins and with quarterback Doug Brumfield now back in the fold at practice and that will go a long way in getting the Rebels closer to bowl eligibility.

San Diego State is close is well with four wins but they have a tough schedule the rest of the way with games but three are at home vs. UNLV, Air Force and San Jose State. Then they have New Mexico on the road.

A fifth win seems for sure and the game vs. the Rebels this week depends if UNLV gets Brumfield back. If the QB is out then expect the Aztecs to get the win.
