This is a game I think Air Force should win. They have a much better defense and about an equal offense. That said, with COVID 19 spiking you never know who is going to be missing from the lineup. The one area CSU has really struggled this season is in the area of third and four down conversions. Air Force has a much better rate. There’s the same disparity on third down conversion defense. Some of that has to do with the fact that CSU has played three games and two of the opponents have really solid defenses but it’s still a significant disparity.
Air Force 38, Colorado State 24
