Air Force continues their push toward bowl eligibility as they travel to Fresno State to take on the Bulldogs.
Air Force sits at just 1-3 in the MWC, which likely means their only chance at a postseason berth will be grabbing 2 more wins and clinching bowl eligibility.
Air Force Falcons
At just 1-3 in MWC play, the Falcons will be playing for 2 more wins this season as they try to clinch a bowl berth.
The Falcons started the season off at 4-0, but have since dropped 3 straight games as their defense has been a huge let down.
After allowing 35 points to Wyoming and 45 points to New Mexico, the Falcons missed a chip shot field goal at the end of their game against Hawaii and sent it into overtime. The Falcons defense couldn’t come up with a stop as they dropped their third straight 34-27.
The Falcons will need to find their defense that led them to that 4-0 start, as they are simply missing too many tackles and allowing too many big plays.
Offensively, they’re not having much issue with their option game. They set up 14 straight run plays on their final drive in regulation against the Rainbow Warriors to set up the short field goal attempt that was missed.
On the season, Air Force has rushed for 291.4 yards per game.
Fresno State Bulldogs
Things have been quite a mess for the Fresno State Bulldogs this season.
The Bulldogs lone win came against a Sub Division 1 team, as they once again felt defeat last week. This time, it was to Utah State who put up a 38 spot on them.
Lack of firepower has hurt this Bulldogs team. Fresno State is averaging just 20.5 points per game, which ranks 121st in the nation.
Offensively, their offense really fails to keep the ball in their possession by moving the chains. Fresno State is averaging just 350 yards per game and simply has no big playmakers that have that breakaway speed.
Defensively, things aren’t any better for them. Allowing 34.1 points per game, the Bulldogs have been torched by the run.
Fresno State has given up 267.5 rush yards per game, which ranks 124th in the nation.
