The Line: Air Force Falcons -17 -- Over/Under:
The Fresno State Bulldogs shoot for back to back wins when they visit the Air Force Falcons.
A 4th quarter rally propelled the Fresno State Bulldogs to a 31-28 victory versus visiting UNLV that snapped a five game slide. A 14-0 game ending run was the key with the Bulldogs holding a 410-299 edge in yards with some balance. Fresno quarterback Kilton Anderson was key as he connected on 19-31 throws for 193 yards while rushing eleven times for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Marteze Waller ardspaced the ground game with 111 yards and a pair of scores on 21 carries with a pair of trips to the end zone while snagging two throws for another 15 yards. Chad Olsen and Jamire Jordan paced the Bulldogs receiving corps with 86 yards on eight carries.
The Air Force Falcons appeared to have the edge against Colorado State with their option against the Rams run ‘D’ but that didn’t play out on the field with CSU walking away with a 38-23 victory. The Rams threw for nearly 300 yards on the way to 456 yards with AFA totaling 406 yards. Quarterback Karson Roberts was the Falcons main offensive weapon as he threw for 104 yards on 9-15 with an interception while leading the ground game with 79 yards on 24 carries. Shayne Davern was second in rushing with 76 yards and a touchdown on six touches while catching a 33 yard pass. Garrett Brown was the top Air Fore receiver with five receptions for 75 yards but both sides of the ball needed more punch.
The Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games while going 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. The Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games on grass and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games while going 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. Fresno State might have a little momentum but Air Force has to win this…
