Challenges for Air Force

There’s always the danger of overlooking an FCS opponent. This game will be no different in that respect. What will be different is that the Falcon’s opponent played three live college football games back in March/April, winning two of them. Air Force had only practice games during that time period. The Leopards were solid on defense for an FCS team and have a good number of defenders back but that won’t be enough to take down Air Force unless the Falcons show up sleepwalking. That is very doubtful that will occur in a season-opening game.

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon MT. You can watch this college football game on the Stadium Network at
