Why Air Force Will Win
Can Utah State stop the run? Not really.
New Mexico wasn’t fully functional, and it still managed to run for close to 200 yards last week in Utah State’s win. Nevada and Fresno State was too busy firing at will through the air against the Aggies to bother running, but San Diego State motored for over 400 yards against a D allowing over five yards per carry.
Air Force has only played four games spaced out over the last two months, but it’s been fantastic against everyone but San Jose State with four touchdowns in each of the other three games and over 350 yards.
Utah State doesn’t have the San Jose State defense.
Why Utah State Will Win
The Utah State offense actually worked against New Mexico … sort of.
It ran and threw for 200 yards in the team’s best offensive output of the year, and the O has improved in each of the last three weeks.

What’s Going To Happen
Utah State beat a New Mexico team without QB Tevaka Tuioti – whoopee.
Air Force will go Air Force and run for over 300 yards while keeping the ball for well over 35 minutes, and closer to 40. Utah State will throw for a few yards, but it won’t be able to do enough to keep up.
