Boise State Bowl Projections – Post Utah State

Here we are, already at the end of the regular season for Boise State Football. It’s gone by fast, and it’s another 10-win season for the Boys in Blue.

After their victory against Utah State on Saturday there hasn’t been too much shifting in the bowl projections, but a lot could change over the next week leading up to the bowl announcements.

Before we go over the projections, there is a chance that Boise State could still end up in a big bowl. For the Group of 5 to be represented in one of the big bowls they have to be the highest-ranked Group of 5 to win their conference championship.

There is a scenario where No.9 UCF could lose the American Athletic Conference Championship to Memphis, still be the highest ranked Group of 5 team and not be the representative. UCF defeated Memphis earlier in the year 31-30.

UCF will be without their starting QB due to a season-ending injury. 

This would most likely lead to a scenario where the winner of the Boise State – Fresno State game could decide who would be the Group of 5 representative.

With that in mind, things could change quite a bit. Boise State can only control what is in front of them and that is Fresno State this coming Saturday night.
