Comments

Lafayette finished with a 2-1 record in their short spring “2020” season. The Falcons have been pretty dominant in this home season-opening games against FCS teams. Air Force is 24-0 all-time against FCS teams and 14-0 against those schools under Troy Calhoun. Air Force’s biggest concern has to be their offensive line where they have the cumulative experience of only a combined 3 games started. This won’t matter on Saturday, however. The Falcons will roll.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Air Force 38, Lafayette 7
