Bowl projections for Wyoming heading into November

Wyoming - New Mexico Football

Wyoming's Brett Brenton carries the ball against New Mexico on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie. Wyoming defeated New Mexico 23-10.

LARAMIE -- Wyoming's football team has a November schedule nobody would envy, and now the Cowboys have to try to navigate it without their starting quarterback.

That's the focus for Wyoming, which starts its final four-game gauntlet with a trip to Boise State on Saturday. The Broncos, who were ranked No. 22 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday, sit atop the Mountain West's Mountain Division standings, but Wyoming is just one-half game back of the Broncos and needs this one if it's going to keep realistic pace in the division title hunt.

Tyler Vander Waal is taking over the reins of the offense again following news that Sean Chambers will miss the rest of the season with his left knee injury. Wyoming will likely need at least one more win to assure itself of playing in a bowl game this year, but with the Cowboys already technically bowl-eligible at 6-2, here's a look at their latest bowl projections.

Note: The Mountain West has contracted tie-ins with the Las Vegas, Arizona, New Mexico, Potato and Hawaii bowls. An asterisk indicates matchups in which Wyoming is being projected as a replacement should other conferences not fill their bowl allotment.
