The Line: Air Force Falcons +1.5 -- Over/Under:
The Utah State Aggies will travel to play the Air Force Falcons in a Mountain West conference showdown on Saturday.
The Air Force Falcons are coming off of a win against Army in their last game. The Air Force offense is averaging 34 points per game with 441 yards per game. Quarterback Karson Roberts leads the Air Force offense with 694 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Roberts also is a big rushing contributor for Air Force with 410 yards and 7 touchdowns. Jacobi Jones leads the Air Force rushing attack with 615 yards and 4 touchdowns. Garrett Brown is the leading receiver for Air Force with 483 yards and 1 touchdown. The Air Force defense is giving up 18.9 points per game with 290.8 yards per game. Air Force’s defense has 27 sacks, 5 fumble recoveries, and 9 interceptions. Air Force is 6-3 this season and on a three game win streak, so they will be playing with plenty of confidence when they host Utah State.
Utah State is coming off of a loss to New Mexico in their last game. Utah State’s offense is averaging 29.9 points per game with 361.4 yards per game. Quarterback Kent Myers leads the Utah State offense with 1106 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Chuckie Keeton, the season opener starter, is healthy once again for Utah State but it isn’t clear if they plan to use him. Devante Mays is the leading rusher for Utah State with 615 yards and 7 touchdowns. Hunter Sharp is the leading receiver for Utah State with 402 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Utah State defense is giving up 23.8 points per game with 315.4 yards per game. Utah State’s defense has 23 sacks, 10 fumble recoveries, and 9 interceptions. Utah State has really struggled in their last 2 road games and need a big bounce back performance after losing a tough one to New Mexico.
Utah State is 7-0 ATS in their last games following an ATS loss. Utah State is 21-7 ATS against a team with a winning record. The over is 7-1 in Utah State’s last 8 conference games. Air Force is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. Air Force is 5-1 ATS against a team with a winning record. The under is 8-3 in Air Force’s last 11 games against a team with a winning record.
Air Force is coming into this game on a roll against a Utah State team who has struggled on the road. I like Air Force to win this game behind their second best rushing attack in the nation. Also, the Air Force defense has been very tough this year. I think all signs point to an Air Force victory.
