The Mountain West should have more than enough teams to fill bowl slots – again. It’ll either need the champion to be the highest ranked Group of Five team available for the New Year’s Six, or it’ll need a few conferences to not fill their spots.
The thought is that the Sun Belt won’t have enough teams available, opening up a slot in the Frisco Bowl – a good bowl spot considering the matchup might be strong. If Air Force doesn’t go to the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, put it in the Frisco.
The Mountain West doesn’t have a true pecking order after the Las Vegas – where the champion goes. The bowl matchups are based on best possible games and geography.
1. Las Vegas
Boise State Broncos vs. Arizona Wildcats
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Wyoming Cowboys vs. Bowling Green Falcons
Gildan New Mexico Bowl
San Diego State Aztecs vs. Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
Colorado State Rams vs. Temple Owls
NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl
New Mexico Lobos vs. BYU (Sun Belt not projected to fill spot)
Air Force Falcons vs. Houston Cougars (Sun Belt not projected to fill spot)
Conditional if bowl can’t fill a spot.
