It’s kind of surprising the Air Force Falcons are the favorite here given they haven’t played a true home game in well over a month, and they’re running into a SDSU squad that plays its best at home. It’s not always pretty with San Diego State, but the defense is solid, and it usually controls the trenches. This is also senior night for the Aztecs and a roster that has 20 seniors. Toss up game. Give me San Diego State at home.
