    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – The Falcons should be able to get off to a hot start against Abilene Christian and Georgia State at home, while the toughest non-conference game against Navy is also in Colorado Springs. Going to Army shouldn’t be that bad.

    – The week off comes way early – on September 17th – to be ready for the Mountain West opener at Utah State. But that means it’s a ten-win run without a break the rest of the way.

    – Just when the dog days start to kick in late In October, the Falcons have to go on the road for three trips in four weeks, going to Fresno State, Army and San Jose State.

    – The Utah State game might be on the road – as is the tough date against San Diego State from the West – but Colorado State and Boise State are home games in late November.

    – WATCH OUT FOR … the road game at Utah State is the only tough trip away from home. San Jose State is good, but the Falcons should be able to handle that if they really are good enough to be in the MW title hunt. Wyoming, Fresno State, and Army isn’t a bad slate, making a win in the early game at Utah State vital..
