The guys who own and operate the bowl system have posted two 'educated' opinions about which bowls will feature which teams.  It's two/thirds of the way through the season so some teams have eliminated themselves and some have distinguished themselves so I think it's a worthy and interesting time to start looking at how things might play out.

Personally, I'm rooting for a Utah - Utah State Fiesta Bowl matchup but that could also be in the Las Vegas Bowl if Fresno State is in the Fiesta.  2018-19 Aggies versus Utes will be debated endlessly otherwise.

I highly doubt it.

For weeks the one pundit, whose name should be pronounced "basura," has had SDSU playing Army in the Armed Forces Bowl. Since SDSU and Army played each other in that bowl last year there is absolutely no chance of that. The other pundit Sherman could be correct about a BYU-SDSU matchup since the schools are longtime rivals of a sort and haven't played each other in six years but would the folks in Albuquerque really want to see SDSU return to their city only a month after we were already there (this Saturday)?

We've never played in the Zona Bowl and haven't been to Tucson in 18 years so given the proximity to San Diego which would enhance the number of Aztecs likely to make the trip, I'll be very surprised if we don't end up there unless we somehow shock the world and win the MW title. Which would mean you guys will end up in Albuquerque.

This is a serious bowl name? Cheesus  Jesus Christ. 

The Cheez It Bowl is probably the most apropos bowl game to host Utah v. Utah State : 2018 edition
