Boise State and Air Force continue their 2020 campaign on Saturday, and the Broncos definitely have the momentum. BSU was able to capture a 42-13 home win over Utah State last week in their first game of the year.
The Falcons already have two games under their belt – one good and one bad. Air Force began their season with a dominant 40-7 win over Navy as TD underdogs, but lost 17-6 last week to San Jose State as -7.5 favorites.
Boise State Broncos
It was a successful start to the season for the Broncos, but they were also -17 point home favorites against Utah State. Even so, rambling out to a 28-0 halftime lead in the first tilt of the year is impressive.
Boise State showed nice balance on offense last week, running for 171 yards and throwing for 279. Hank Bachmeier was incredibly efficient at QB, going 20/28 with 3 TD and 0 INT.
Bachmeier had some help, as RB George Holani had a 100-yard rushing game on a mere 14 carries. Rush yards may be hard to come by against Air Force, who held Navy to 90 yards in the opener and San Jose to just 75 on the ground last game.
Boise State also did a great job against the Utah State offense, limiting them to barely over 200 total yards. The Aggies averaged 431.3 yds/game last season so that’s a strong showing by the Broncos D.
Air Force Falcons
Air Force failed to build on their win over Navy in the opener, but to be fair there was quite a gap between the October 3rd game vs. the Midshipmen and the October 24th contest with San Jose State.
The Falcons are sticking to their same old strategy of run, run, run the ball. Air Force toted the rock 53 times for 369 vs. Navy and rushed 49 times for 206 yards last week.
Boise State had a top 20 rush defense a year ago, giving them a great chance at stifling the Air Force ground attack on Saturday night. The Falcons have boasted a top 5 rushing attack thus far, however.
The Air Force defense has also had a couple strong showings, although against a couple of one-sided offenses. The Falcons currently rank 8th in total yards/game allowed and have a top 10 run defense.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction:
The two TD spread is a tricky one here, considering Air Force is strictly a running team – but very good at it. The Falcons are at home however, where they’ve won two of the last three against Boise straight up.
Free NCAA Betting Pick: Air Force +14
Boise State has won for two straight years in this series, but by 11 and 10 points. Expect a similar outcome Saturday.
