Seven teams are it for the post season

The Mountain West will have seven bowl eligible teams and history points to all teams earning a spot in the postseason. Utah State became bowl eligible with an upset win over San Jose State.

UNLV dropped a game at Hawaii and can’t get to six wins to become bowl eligible which is a disappointment after a 4-1 start. The best they can do is 5-7.

– Cotton Bowl – at-large vs. Group of Five
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl vs MAC
– Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl vs Pac-12
– New Mexico Bowl vs Conference USA
