Conference Championship Tracker

November 26, 2023 by Staff

Every conference championship game matchup is set, including the Mountain West after computers determined it will be Boise State vs. UNLV.

Boise State, San José State, and UNLV all finished the regular season with identical 6-2 MW records. Since all three teams did not face each other this season and no team was ranked in the latest College Football Playoff (CFP) rankings, the three-way tie was broken by computer rankings from Anderson & Hester, Colley Matrix, Massey and Wolfe, all of which used to be part of the BCS (Bowl Championship Series).

According to the average computer rankings, UNLV finished at 44.50, while Boise State was at 55.75 and San Jose State at 58.50. Therefore, the Broncos and Rebels secured their spots in the MW Championship. UNLV and Boise State did not play each other during the regular season. The Rebels had the higher overall average ranking and earned the right to host the title tilt.
