Well it's down to the brass tax now. Boise must beat SDSU and UNLV must pull off a huge upset against AFA for the Broncos to play in the MWC championship game. I believe BSU will beat the Aztecs. But the other side of the equation isn't likely. So let's look at the most likely scenario of BSU finishing 8-4 having beaten 2 ranked teams.
I personally cannot see the MWC putting BSU in the Potato Bowl. Two reasons: 1: The optics are horrible. It's like saying " you suck so bad you'll play your bowl game in your home field so you'll have a chance to win". 2: BSU is a nationally recognized name. I suspect there will be some wheeling and dealing with ESPN to match BSU up with another big name school.
If BSU loses to SDSU at that point the Broncos will just have to settle for whatever bowl they draw? Even the Potato Bowl.But I have faith that won't happen. Even for a 7-5 BSU.
What say you nuggies? What's your best prediction and what matchup would you like to see?
