Wyoming football has just two remaining regular season games, and bowl game speculation continues to have the experts guessing where college football’s winning teams will land.

The Pokes are currently 7-3 and very likely to have their first back-to-back bowl season since the late 80’s.

The Mountain West Conference has guaranteed tie-ins to five bowl games: Las Vegas Bowl, New Mexico Bowl, Hawaii Bowl, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, and the Arizona Bowl.

The conference champion likely lands in the Las Vegas Bowl this year. Boise State is just one win or one Wyoming loss away from clinching the Mountain Division and playing either San Diego State or Fresno State in the conference championship.

Thus, Wyoming’s chances of appearing in the Las Vegas bowl are slim. The New Mexico Bowl has the second largest payout of the five games, so most experts agree the loser of the championship game will appear in that one.

This leaves the experts guessing between Hawaii, Arizona, or the Potato Bowl for the Cowboys.

Wyoming finishes their home schedule Saturday against Fresno State at Noon. Saturday, the 25th they’ll finish up the regular season with a trip to San Jose State University.

Here are the current bowl projections from several analysts:

CBS’s Jerry Palm: Idaho Potato Bowl – December 22 Vs. Northern Illinois

ESPN’s David Hale: Idaho Potato Bowl – December 22 Vs. Toledo

ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura: Arizona Bowl – December 29 Vs. New Mexico State

USA Today’s Paul Myerberg: Arizona Bowl – Decemebr 29 Vs. Utah

Sporting News’ Bill Bender: Cactus Bowl – December 26 Vs. Kansas State

SB Nation’s Jason Kirk: Potato Bowl – December 22 Vs. Central Michigan

Bleacher Report’s Kerry Miller: New Mexico Bowl – December 16 Vs. Florida International
