Air Force Falcons College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction
Air Force has to replace just about everyone on both sides of the ball in a year when just about everyone else returns ridiculous numbers of starters.
Can this still work? Can the Falcons use the one tune-up game against Lafayette before diving into the fun against Navy on the road and the Mountain West opener against Utah State to follow?
Fortunately, the first half of the season is just light enough to allow the Falcons to improve while still building up their win total before things get a whole lot harder in the second half.
Set The Air Force Falcons Regular Season Win Total At … 6.5
It’ll likely be possible to pull off a win over Boise State or San Diego State, but there’s a brutal run of four games in five away from Colorado Springs. In that run, the San Diego State game is the only home game in a seven-week span.
It’ll be too much to pull off a run to get to the Mountain West Championship, but with no San Jose State, Hawaii or Fresno State to face, and with the good early part of the slate, getting to a bowl game should be a given.
At least, it should be if the Air Force next-man-up style of replacing talent works again.
