Show Us Your Picks: Bowl Season
LARAMIE -- Two more Mountain West programs played in bowl games this week.
Air Force knocked off Baylor Thursday in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas. The Falcons capped a 10-3 campaign with a 30-15 victory.
That Wyoming win over the Fly Boys looks even better now, huh?
San Jose State, a team that strolled into War Memorial Stadium in early October and handed the Cowboys a dominating 33-16 loss, fell Tuesday to Eastern Michigan 41-27 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
The conference is currently 3-1 in the postseason.
San Diego State will take on Middle Tennessee in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve, Utah State plays Memphis in the First Responder Bowl three days later and, of course, Craig Bohl's Pokes will take on Ohio Dec. 30 in the Arizona Bowl. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m. Mountain Time and the game will be streamed on the Barstool App.
