Challenges for Air Force

Stony Brook is no pushover. They return 12 starters from last season’s team including QB Joe Carbone. Carbone, now a senior, is a big, strong player who runs his team’s offense well. In 2017 Carbone threw for almost 2,500 yards, 23 touchdowns and just 8 interceptions. Looking at Stony Brook’s depth chart they don’t look like an FCS team. Their offensive line averages about 315 pounds. Air Force had better not overlook these guys or it could be a bad day at the office.

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon MT (2 PM ET) and can be seen on online on Facebook.
