CHALLENGES

Air Force versus Navy is always a hard-fought game with the home team usually coming up victorious. In order to stop Navy, the Falcons must first slow down Mid QB Zach Abey who has run for 656 yards on 117 carries (5.6 ypc) and seven touchdowns. This game could come down to turnovers and the Falcons have a decent edge in that area. Navy-Marine Corps Stadium has become a very tough road venue for visitors. The Falcons will need to try to block out the crowd and focus on proper execution and poise.
