Boise State vs Air Force Game Preview

Why Boise State Will Win

Oh, you think you have a running game, Air Force?

Boise State was doing nothing, the team crashed against UTEP and couldn’t do anything in the first half against San Diego State, and then …

Boom.

The ground game kicked in on the way to 316 rushing yards and five scores in the win. It was all followed up with 316 more yards in the win over Fresno State.

Air Force might be playing well overall, but it lost to Utah State after allowing close to 200 rushing yards, and lost to Wyoming after allowing 180. Those are the two losses.

The five wins came when the D allowed fewer than 180 yards on the ground.

The Bronco offense figured it out to go along with the amazing defense.

Don’t blink – with these two ground games keeping things moving this should last about 90 minutes.
