Air Force (2-3) vs. San Diego State (4-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
San Diego State just made a statement that it’s the star of the Mountain West again with an impressive 19-13 win over Boise State. It didn’t have QB Christian Chapman, and it doesn’t have RB Juwan Washington, but it didn’t matter.
The defense pitched a gem, and now it’s up to the run defense to come up with yet another day allowing fewer than 100 yards. It’s done that in four of the five games so far.
Air Force found something in freshman QB Donald Hammond, who stepped in against Navy and ran for 60 yards and three scores in the shocking 35-7 win.
San Diego State might not crank up enough offense to pull away with ease – the passing game isn’t there – but the defense is second in the nation against the run. It doesn’t do too much to get behind the line, but that doesn’t matter.
Everyone can hit – the secondary is outstanding at coming up with pops – but it’ll be a total team effort to keep the Falcon offense down in another strong Mountain West win.
