An optimistic Air Force comes into No. 20 Broncos on Friday night at the Mountain West opener for both teams. Both teams come in flying battle and high .
Boise State (3-0) and Wisconsin (2-0) are the only real teams nationwide to not allow a second-half point. Finish running FCS Portland State and the efforts helped the Broncos rally to overcome Florida State and held on to defeat Marshall.
The Falcons (2-0) hauled Colgate in their opener and then sent a 30-23 overtime triumph in Colorado last week. Air Force about how good the players feel they’re talking was left by that win.
Notching an upset will be as Boise State is looking to win its 20th conference opener. The Broncos‘ past such reduction came in 1999 when they were defeated 17-10 by North Texas as members of the Big West.
Boise State also possesses the best home record (115-9) this century.
But Air Force did score one of those few victories in the turf — 37-30 in 2015 — so Broncos coach Bryan Harsin is on full alert when it has to do with the Falcons‘ offensive attack that is tricky.
„It is not only triple option,“ Harsin stated at a press conference. „They actually are very creative in their formations, they can be creative in how they strike each team… and their quarterback is playing very well. He can throw the ball well“
Hammond passed against Colorado for a career-high 155 yards and one of the own touchdown passes was an 81-yarder to senior recipient Ben Waters, tied to the death score in school history.
Air Force prefers to operate the ball and also Remsburg responded using a career-best 146 yards.
The Falcons will be looking to keep Broncos pass rusher Curtis Weaver out of the backfield. The junior linebacker leads the country with six sacks after matching the school record of four.
„It is good, but we must keep moving forward,“ said Weaver, who ranks third in program history with 26.5 career sacks. „We’re heading into Mountain West play today, so it’s still our aim to get that ring“
The Boise State offense has been clicking behind freshman quarterback Hank Bachmeier, that has passed for four touchdowns and 927 yards.
True freshman George Holani (216 yards) and junior Robert Mahone (215) have split the ball-carrying duties, although sophomore Khalil Shakir is the very best wideout with 17 catches for 237 yards.
Air Force cornerback Milton Bugg III includes just two interceptions and mature safety Jeremey Fejedelem is coming from a career-best campaign with 14 tackles against Colorado in his career double-digit performance.
Ultimately, Boise State is going to be athletic and overly physical with this particular Air Force team. I like the point spread and to be covered by Boise also for your own possessions to become drawn out and long and for this game to stay beneath the 55.
