Air Force should be the clear favorite in this game. Air Force and Utah State have played about the same level of difficulty in schedules yet Air Force has a substantial advantage in just about every statistic. My only concern would be that they have an interim head coach who just took over a couple weeks ago. They are coming off an inspiring comeback win over New Mexico. Maybe they are finally getting things together. Air Force can’t afford to take them or anyone lightly.
Air Force 34, Utah State 17
