We have reached week eight of the college football season and most teams are now in the conference portion of the schedule.
On Friday night it’s a Mountain West conference showdown at Mackay Stadium.
The Air Force Falcons will make the trip to take on the Nevada Wolf Pack in a game where both teams are really desperate for a win. These teams have faced off three times before and the visitors won each of the contests.
Air Force Falcons
The Air Force Falcons haven’t had the season they were hoping for at all, but a win in this game might just be enough to turn around their season.
They won their first game of the season, and the last game they played, and lost the four games in between those games.
Besides the game against New Mexico they have played well they just haven’t been able to make winning plays down the stretch of games and that has been the difference.
For the Falcons like most of the service academies they run the triple option, and they have been very effective doing so.
So far this season they are averaging 36 points and 437 yards per game. Of those 437 yards 304 of those are on the ground.
On the defensive side of the ball is where the Falcons struggle. They are giving up 31.8 points and 383 yards per game.
To win this game the defense is going to need to step up big. At some point they need to step up and play better and no better game for that to happen then in this one.
Nevada Wolf pack
On the other side of this match up is the Nevada Wolf Pack who have really struggled this year only picking up one win, and that came against Hawaii.
In their last game against Colorado State they probably played their best game of the season that still ended in a loss.
They came in as 25 point favorites but the offense really stepped up and they only ended up losing by two points, 44-42.
To have any chance in this game the offense is going to have to play like they did last week. The Falcons are going to get their points and the Wolf Pack are going to need to try and keep up.
