Air Force is expected to go to the Independence bowl, so it is time to project the rest of the Mountain West teams and where they will go bowling. A lot of pundits keep insisting that Air Force will go to the Armed Forces Bowl, but if they were to take the time to read the fine print Army is a choice if they are bowl eligible so an Air Force vs. Army rematch is not going to happen. It will be an Army vs. C-USA matchup.
The Sugar keeps their SEC team which will help with ticket sales and so with the first pick why not take the best team available who would be a third ranked TCU
Las Vegas Bowl:
This one is tricky because Texas would have to beat Texas A&M which is a large feat, but I think it is possible. Notre Dame is also a candidate, and could be a choice even if it is a rematch with Utah. The other possible choice is Tennessee or a run of the mill MAC team.
San Diego State Aztecs vs. Navy Midshipmen
This game is pretty much set in stone as this would be a home game for the Aztecs and with San Diego being a Navy town a large crowd is expected.
New Mexico Bowl:
BYU Cougars vs. Fresno State Bulldogs
This will be a future matchup next year as BYU is playing a WAC heavy schedule. A good matchup nonetheless but the winner must be prepared to battle the New Mexico Bowl curse where the bowl winner goes onto a losing season the following year.
