The 2016 Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl pins the South Alabama Jaguars against the Air Force Falcons.
The Jaguars clinched their 6th win in their final game of the season, while Air Force has ran off 5 straight wins.
South Alabama Jaguars
Needing 2 wins out of their last 3 games to clinch a spot in the postseason, South Alabama delivered thanks to their offense, which came up huge down the stretch of the season.
South Alabama defeated Presbyterian and New Mexico State, with a loss against Idaho in between over their final 3 games as the offense surpassed their season average of 25.8 points per game on all 3 occasions.
The Jaguars put up 31 on Presbyterian and thanks to a pair of 4th quarter touchdowns, hung 35 on New Mexico State.
This team leans on Xavier Johnson, who had a huge game in the win over NMSU.
Johnson rumbled for 154 yards and 3 touchdowns, as he’s racked up 11 touchdowns this season.
Expect the Jaguars to try and control the tempo with their ground game, knowing what they’ll be up against when it comes to playing Air Force and the triple option.
South Alabama ranks 98th in the nation, with 212 rush yards against per game.
Air Force Falcons
It was a season of streaks for this Air Force team.
After starting the season off 4-0, the Falcons dropped 3 straight games before rattling off 5 wins to finish the season. With the tough luck of being in a tough Mountain West Mountain division, the Falcons finished just 4th in the standings, but have a chance to secure a solid 10 win season here.
It’s no secret what this team is going to do here in this one.
Air Force ranks 37th in the nation with 451.5 yards per game and 322.8 of those come on the ground. Air Force will look to wear teams out and will certainly have a chance to do that here against a weak defensive front from South Alabama.
Defensively, this team is very underrated. The Falcons allow only 118 yards per game on the ground and have the 40th ranked defense in the nation in terms of yardage.
This secondary is very vulnerable against the pass, which is something to watch for here should South Alabama open their playbook up a bit.
