Air Force woke up to snow and plenty of bowl scenarios today. The way I see it, the Las Vegas, Poinsettia, Armed Forces and New Mexico Bowls all are in play.
The reps from bowls with Mountain West Conference ties meet with representatives from each bowl-eligible program this week in Vegas.

Like I wrote last night, that game is monstrous for Air Force.
