We have reached week five of the college football season which means there are a lot of conference showdowns. The Nevada Wolf Pack make the trip to Colorado Springs to take on the Air Force Falcons in a Mountain West conference game.
These teams have played four times so far with the Falcons coming out ahead in three of those games.
Nevada Wolf Pack
The Nevada Wolf Pack have had an up and down season and come into this game with a 2-2 record and their path to victory is very simple, they need to score a lot of points.
In the two games that the Wolf Pack have won they are averaging 54.5 points per game. In the games they have lost they are averaging 27 points per game.
The Wolf Pack are led by quarterback Ty Gangi who has been good this year throwing for 1073 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions.
He is a good quarterback as long as he isn’t turning the ball over, and that is a big if in his case.
In this game it’s all going to come down to the offense. They need to try and run up the score early and hope the Falcons can’t keep up.
Air Force Falcons
On the other side of this matchup is the Air Force Falcons who started off the season strong winning the first two games, but they come into this one having lost two straight games.
Their defense has really struggled in the last two games and that has led to two straight losses. They get behind early and for a triple option team it’s very hard to climb back into those type of games.
On the offensive end the Falcons run a triple option and come into this game averaging 288.3 yards per game on the ground.
Through the air they are averaging 113.7 yards per game which doesn’t sound like a ton, but for a team that is run first it does help balance the offense.
To win this game the defense needs to play better than they did in the last two games. If the defense struggles they could be in trouble.
