Bowl throwing season is here

Now is the season for magazines and premieres which includes among other things: bowl screenings. So, before we get to our own pre-season bowl guesses, because in June that’s what they really are, but fun nonetheless.

One of our USA TODAY partners is College Football News and we will go through them bowl protrusions for the Mountain West for this coming season.

2022 Mountain West Bowl Tie Ins Lineup

The teams chosen for a bowling game are the Air Force, Boise State, Utah State, Colorado State, Fresno State, and San Diego State.

It’s a bit of a shock that Wyoming is left out of bowl screenings because they’ve always been a consistent team to go into the postseason. They’re losing offense and a lot of players to the transfer portal in the last offseason, and a few defensemen are now in the NFL.

Plus, no San Jose State likely means in their thinking that Brent Brennan won’t have a rebound year to go bowling after a 2021 season that saw injuries to his quarterback and a defense that sagged. recoil.

On the other hand, Jay Norvell gets a lot of credit as Colorado State’s next head coach by coming from Nevada. be a nice surprise for Rams fans. Colorado State was actually close to a bowl game last year with some bad setbacks under Steve Addazio.

Norvell is a coaching upgrade, so combine that with the talent already in Fort Collins and Nevada players going West, this team has a good chance of going to a bowling game.
