It’s a big week three showdown on Saturday afternoon at the big house. The Air Force Falcons make the trip to Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines.
These two teams have played twice in their history with the Wolverines winning both of those games. The Wolverines won the last match up in 2012 winning by a final score of 31-25.
Air Force Falcons
Statistically the Air Force Falcons had the most dominating performance in week one. They played the Virginia Military Institute and they won by a final score of 62-0. They racked up 647 yards and 457 of those were on the ground, both which are the best in the nation.
On the defensive side they might have been even more impressive. They only allowed 95 yards all game, which was also the best in week one.
I don’t care how bad a team is, if you can hold them to under 100 yards that is super impressive. That defense is really going to need to step up big again in this game.
They need to force some turnovers if they want to win this game, because the offense production won’t be as good as week one against the Wolverines.
The good news for the Falcons is they had a bye week in week two. That gives them an extra week to prepare for the Wolverines who is probably the toughest opponent on their schedule.
To win this game the running game is going to need to get going early. They need to wear down the big guys of the Wolverines up front early.
On the other side of this match up is the Michigan Wolverines who have looked real impressive in the first two weeks of the season, and they look like they are for real this year.
After beating the Gators in week one they dominated the Bearcats in all aspects of the field and won by a final score of 36-14.
Quarterback Wilton Speight has grabbed the starting job and ran with it. Against the Bearcats he threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns.
He didn’t throw any interceptions which was a good bounce back after throwing two pick sixes against the Florid Gators.
To win this game the Wolverines need to stack the box and make the Falcons not be able to run. They need to force the Falcons to throw it over the top and beat them through the air.
