New Mexico vs. Air Force

Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 2:01 PM (Dreamstyle Stadium)

AFA -22.5 O/U 59


Air Force has quietly put together a good season, at 7-2 and has one of the best rushing attacks in the nation. The Falcons are coming off a big win against Army, and this week will look to avoid a letdown when it plays at New Mexico, a 2-7 team. The Falcons are second in the Mountain West, and a game behind Boise State. New Mexico has lost six in a row after a 2-1 start.

Air Force is second nationally in rushing, averaging 323 yards per game. The team is averaging 108 yards passing. The Falcons are averaging 34.4 points and giving up 20.9. Over nine games Air Force has attempted just 86 passes, completing 44.

Donald Hamilton III has passed for 712 yards for the Falcons, with five touchdowns and four interceptions. He has run for 373 yards and eight touchdowns. Kadin Remsberg has run for 677 yards and seven scores. Timothy Jackson has run for 661 yards and six touchdowns. Taven Birdow has run for 563 yards and six touchdowns. Twenty different players have carried the ball this season. Gerald Sanders has 498 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

Tevaka Tuiti has passed for 1250 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions for New Mexico. Ahmari Davis has 823 yards and eight touchdowns rushing. Bryson Carroll has 463 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Air Force beat New Mexico last year to end a three-game losing streak. New Mexico has won four of the last six meetings but Air Force leads the all-time series 22-14. Look for that 22 to turn into 23 in this game as the running attack of the Falcons is able to dominate the game here rather easily. Final Score Prediction, Air Force Falcons win, but do not cover 31-20
