Challenges for Air Force

The Falcons can’t get too disheartened by a 2-4 start. Air Force should be the favorites in four of their final six games, including UNLV. The Falcons will likely be slight underdogs in the Boise state game but that one is to be played in Colorado Springs so you never know. Against Army, the Black Knights will likely be solid favorites but Air Force can play a “nothing to lose” spoiler role at West Point against an overconfident opponent.

Friday’s game kicks off at 8 pm CT and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
