What’s Going To Happen
With both teams 0-1 in the Mountain West, this is a big conference game – even if it’s an interdivisional matchup.
Is New Mexico back to being New Mexico running the ball? Just okay over the first three games, the Lobos ripped it up against Tulsa with 338 yards in the tight win, helped by third-string QB Coltin Gerhart taking off for 156 yards.
More importantly, the Lobo defensive front has to hold up.
Everyone’s been trying to throw on the New Mexico secondary, but the defensive front has been strong, giving up just 389 yards so far. Now it needs to keep getting into the backfield to slow down the Air Force running game before it starts.
The Falcons are having a hard time throwing the ball, and the 220 yards and three scores weren’t enough to get by San Diego State.
However, the Air Force version of the ground game will be slightly more effective than the New Mexico version. There won’t be many big plays, but it’ll be about who’s more efficient. That will be the Falcons.
Expect each team to try controlling the clock and trying to grind out drives in a fast game that will eventually break through for Air Force in the second half.
