CHALLENGES

Air Force lost a 45-40 shootout with New Mexico last season. The Lobos are kind of beaten up as you can see in the section above. They are a mostly running offense with a lot of miss-direction stuff. They even do a few pitchouts. This is the kind of offense that defenses have to be well prepared for. If the Falcons take this game seriously, protect the ball on offense and are ready defensively, they should be able to win this one.
