Air Force vs. Utah State Game Preview & Fearless Prediction

They allowed 48 points to Navy, 56 points to New Mexico, 42 points to Nevada (yes, Nevada), and 44 to Boise State. I fully expect Utah State to put up a lot of points, and theyre going to move to 7-5 with a lot of momentum heading into a bowl game. The Falcon defense is pretty bad. Scheme-wise, New Mexico is essentially a poor mans Air Force. A few weeks ago I wouldnt believe Im saying this, but Utah State actually has a good offense! Jaden Johnson, @jadenjohns0n: Im going to take a similar route as Daniel. If you read my prediction for the USU-New Mexico game a few weeks ago, I thought the Aggies would really struggle against the option, but to my surprise they handled it with ease.

Expect a great regular season finish for a program that has righted the ship. Matt Harris, @snowmatt1417: Utah State has regained something theyve been missing for over a year now: swagger. Unlike the Falcons, USU is a complete team now, able to score and defend with real competency. Sorry for all the doubt, Coach Wells. Air Force is a lesser opponent with a little bit more upset ability than the average Lobo. Sure, its definitely been the easy portion of the conference schedule, but holy cow, the Aggies are FEASTING on these lesser opponents.

The Falcons are rested and ready after dominating a Georgia State team that gave Wisconsin a nightmare of a time at Camp Randall. The running game has worked more than fine over the first two weeks cranking up a nation-leading 432 yards per game so far and it holds on to the ball for close to 40 minutes like its averaging so far, there wont be a problem.
