Teams are getting closer

The season is getting closer to an end which means more and more teams are becoming bowl eligible. Two that are on the cusp are Utah State and UNLV.

The Rebels have four wins with an easier schedule by playing Hawaii and Nevada, but the road tilt against the Warriors is tricky for many teams, plus it’s a rivalry game as well.

Utah State has to play two teams that might just be in the conference title game with hosting San Jose State and then going to Boise State on a Black Friday morning game to wrap up the season.

If those two teams do get to bowl eligibility that would mean the Mountain West would have eight teams going bowling. The odds of one getting shut out seem very unrealistic because last year a pop-up bowl game was created to allow all bowl eligible teams to play in a post season game.

ESPN’s Football Power Index gives the Rebels a 51.5% chance to get to six wins and Utah State 44.3% chance to do the same.
