Hawaii and Air Force face off it what has all of the makings to be a great Saturday night college football cap on the day. Hawaii and Air Force both come into this Mountain West matchup 4-2 and are both recognized as two of the best teams in the whole conference.
We should see some great offense displayed with Hawaii always playing well at home with their successful run and shoot offense they run.
Air Force runs the triple option just as all of the academy schools do, eating up clock and being a real headache to have to defend.
Hawaii is just three-point underdogs at home, coming off of a loss to Boise State where they were not able to stop the Broncos. Air Force on the other side won their last contest against Fresno State winning 43-24.
Air Force Falcons
It is no secret that the Air Force Falcons come into every game with a disadvantage when it comes to talent on the field. Having a team that lacks talent, you have to find creative ways to defend and to score, and the Falcons do just that.
Running the triple option, the Falcons have found themselves at 4-2 and one of the best teams in the Mountain West.
Behind the legs of quarterback Donald Hammond III the Falcons have been able to put up 425 yards of offense on average in their first six games.
The Falcons are a run-first team and that shows with their lackluster 127 average passing yards a game, but showing off their almost 300 yards a game on the ground.
We should see a tight contest on the island this weekend with both Mountain West teams squaring off.
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors started off the season with a shocking bang as they beat two PAC-12 teams and just fell short against Washington on the road.
After their two PAC-12 wins and showing a lot of promise on the offensive side of the ball, the Warrior faithful have had high expectations for the football team.
Led by quarterback Cole McDonald, the Warriors have been able to average 474 yards of total offense a game.
McDonald has been a force in his junior year as well, passing for over 1880 yards and 20 touchdowns to his just nine interceptions.
The problem with the Warriors have been their defense all year long. Giving up 32 points a game, the Warriors have been put in situations where they are trying to outscore every opponent.
The Falcons chew a ton of clock and the defense will have to step up in a big way if they want to pull this one out at home.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
Being the underdog at home is a shock, with Hawaii being great at home, I believe they will be able to pull this game out with not much of a problem. Air Force has to travel all the way to the big island, Hawaii is the pick here.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Hawaii +3.
Hawaii is a very good football team, and so is the Air Force Falcons. These teams have been great on the offensive side of the ball in completely different ways, being at home, the Warriors should have the advantage and be able to cover.
Since this spread is so close, I would choose the Warriors ATS here, surprised they are underdogs against the triple option on the road.
