    Why Air Force Will Win

    How did Boise State possibly lose to New Mexico after dominating for stretches? It kept turning the ball over, giving it away four times and finishing a -2 in turnover margin. On the year, the Broncos have lost the turnover margin in four games, and lost three of them. The Falcons not only have the defense to keep this close, they’re not screwing up on offense with no turnovers in the last three games and a +5 turnover margin.

    Why Boise State Will Win

    The Broncos have the exact right fit for Air Force. The run defense is among the best in the nation – it has yet to allow more than 200 yards in a game and has been a brick wall at times, even though it’s been hit for ten rushing scores in the past four games. As long as the offense can hold on to the ball and the defense can keep the Falcons from going on too many long marches, everything should be fine – it just might take a while to put it away.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    The Air Force defense is good enough to pull this off, but Boise State isn’t going to have the same lousy game twice in a row. The offensive balance should be just enough to get by, while the defense will do its part to keep the Falcon offense under wraps in the second half.
