Air Force has been underrated all season long and it looks like they are doing it again in this one.
Cal had a nice season and is on an overall up tick but this team is nothing special.
Air Force Falcons
The Falcons might have fallen in the MWC title game but this year was still a strong success as they made their way from a division most had them picked third or lower in to start the season.
There is no secret to the Falcons. They are second in the nation at running the ball and they will not quit. They execute so well and they crush you seven yards at a time.
This team may not have a ton of bulk but they have been a very good defensive team this year. Even though they lost against Michigan State they held them to under 350 yards, outgaining them significantly.
They will not be intimidated to face Cal.
This number looks really good. These teams are going to go at each other and Air Force might be outclassed but not outschemed.
California Golden Bears
Cal started hot, winning their first five games against the likes of Texas and the San Diego State team that beat Air Force in the MWC title game.
But as the leaves turned and the competition stiffened they showed they were not quite ready for prime time.
As connected as the Air Force offense is to the run so is Cal with the pass. Rightfully so considering they have maybe the best thrower in the college game and a scheme that fits him.
That would be Jared Goff who could be the first player taken in the next NFL draft. Goff has thrown for more than 4200 yards this season. One of his great gifts is using all the weapons around him.
Six receivers had 400 or more yards this season.
Similar to AF the reason the Bears enjoyed some success is because their defense improved. Still they don’t see a lot of what the Falcons do in the PAC12.
