Boise State is being projected to face Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl by CBS.

Boise State is currently the king of the hill in the Rocky Mountain region, and the Broncos are getting plenty of love in bowl predictions. CBS' bowl predictions following last weekend's slate of games have the Broncos in a BCS bowl, taking on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Fiesta Bowl in a 'rematch one of the most memorable BCS games ever'.

Other teams being projected to hit the bowls include one-loss Nevada, which is currently second in the Mountain West Conference and projected to take on UCLA in the Las Vegas bowl.

Two teams from Utah are also predicted to go bowling. The predictions have Utah taking the place of the No. 4 Big East team in the Pinstripe bowl, taking on Iowa State. Meanwhile, the Utah State Aggies are predicted to go to their eighth ever bowl game, the Famous Potatoes Bowl in Idaho against Northern Illinois.

No teams from Colorado or Wyoming are expected to make any splashes, with Wyoming, Colorado and Colorado State all near the basements of their respective conferences.
