Boise State (5-2) vs. Air Force (3-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
With three of the last four games at home – including the huge showdowns in the Mountain West against Fresno State and Utah State – Boise State has to get through this road date without a problem.
As always against Air Force, it all starts with being able to come up with stops against the run. The Broncos can do that.
They have yet to get gouged on the ground so far, however, they’re 5-0 when they give up under 154, and 0-2 when they allow that or more.
Air Force has yet to run for fewer than 154 yards.
However, Boise State is every bit as good as Air Force at controlling the clock and owning the time of possession battle. They’re also far, far better at owning third downs offensively.
The Broncos will be in for a fight, but they’ll hold their own on the defensive front, and Brett Rypien and the passing game will be just effective enough to get out with a tough fight of a win.
