Challenges for Air Force

The Falcons pulled off a big win at UNLV on Saturday. They need to maintain their momentum in the game against Boise State. While BSU is favored, the Falcons should have decent shot at home. Run the option to perfection and keep the ball in the Falcon’s hands. If Air Force can win this game, they have a good chance to finish the 2018 schedule strong and get to a bowl game.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 5 pm MT and can be seen on CBS Sports Network.
