The Falcons are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Aggies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Falcons last 9 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Aggies last 6 games overall. The Falcons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Air Force Falcons have the best rushing attack in the country, and they’re also not too shabby on defense. The Utah State Aggies are the complete opposite as they’re 97th in total defense, 108th in rush defense and 120th in scoring defense. Air Force dropped 45 points against the Aggies last season, and that’s when Utah State was pretty good. The Air Force Falcons should have a field day offensively. I’ll lay the points.
