Why Colorado State Will Win
The run defense hasn’t been bad.
The wins and success aren’t there, but to have any shot of hanging with Air Force the defensive front has to avoid getting ripped to shreds. That might happen – Air Force has the best rushing attack in the nation – but the Rams have allowed fewer than 150 yards in three of the last four games.
Meanwhile, the passing game has cranked it up with two of its best games of the year – it’s going to stretch the Air Force secondary a bit – but …
Why Air Force Will Win
The Air Force ground game really is just that good. It’s not slowing down.
It’s coming off its fifth 400-yard rushing day of the year after rolling through New Mexico for 421 yards and four scores averaging six yards per carry.
Yeah, Colorado State’s defense hasn’t been bad lately, but Boise State was able to run well, Utah State averaged over five yards per carry, and it hasn’t seen anything like it’s about to deal with.
What’s Going To Happen
Air Force will be Air Force at home.
It’s a local battle – just 130 miles between the two schools – but that won’t matter. The Falcons will run, and run some more, controlling the clock from the start and keeping the Ram passing game from going off.
