If we meet an undefeated SDSU in the conference championship game and lose, do we still get slotted into the MW conference champions spot in the bowl because SDSU goes to a New Years bowl? The leaves are very murky

Such a young season. I don't even think the leaves know if we are going to be in the MWC championship game yet.

My understanding, and I may be wrong so please correct me if so, is that if SDSU gets a NY6 bowl (I doubt Cincy is going to lose out on this but you never know) then the Los Angeles Bowl would get to pick a team to fill the spot (from the Mountain West).

That is how I understand it as well. The champion would get the LA bowl at a minimum. After that there really is no more guarantees. The bowls will choose who think will sell the most tickets and which match ups look the best. The only guarantee the conference gives is that if there are more teams eligible than bowls available that the team records come into play.
What that means is if there are 7 teams eligible and the last 2 teams available to choose have records of 7-5 or 6-6 the team with the higher record would get selected over the team with worse record. This happened to WYO few years ago. They were 6-6, but got left out since there was another team at 7-5.
