Challenges for Air Force

When the Falcons play this game it will have been three weeks since their last game which is a long time. The positives are that the team will be well-rested and some of the nagging injuries have had time to heal. A negative is that the Falcons may have lost some of their muscle memory of some of the plays. Apparently, New Mexico will be playing without its star quarterback Tevaka Tuiot who is injured. Tuiot has over 3,000 career passing yards for the Lobos. Air Force should be the clear favorite here depending on player availability.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7:30 PM MT. Watch on the FS1 network.
