Week 6 college football sees the Cowboys and Falcons meet at Falcon Stadium.
The 4 – 0 Wyoming Cowboys will kick off Mountain West play on the road at Falcon Stadium this weekend. The 4 – 1 Falcons will look to be rude hosts as the line setters have made Air Force nearly TD favorites in Colorado Springs.
For the first time since 1996, the Cowboys have jumped out to a 4 – 0 start to the campaign and they have two weeks to prepare for this battle after bucking out a win over UConn last time out, 24 – 22. The Huskies gave the Cowboys quite a fight and a failed 2-point conversion at the end of the game is what secured the win over 0 – 6 UConn.
The Falcons only set-back this season a 49 – 45 loss to Utah State in week 3, and the defense has been stellar over the last two games. The effort propelled Air Force to 4 – 1 to start the campaign, but this game has become more interesting every year.
This rivalry plays the 59th meeting the Front Range and last year was the first time since 1979 that they haven’t met. Obviously, we all know why that got canceled but this game will have plenty of significance for both programs as they each sit with 4 wins with bowl eligibility in sight already.
The Falcons are favored by 6 points in this MWC matchup.
The undefeated Wyoming Cowboys he said. I know, right, who saw that coming? WIns over Montana State and UConn were to be expected, although UConn certainly didn’t just lay down and play dead last time out.
Having a bye-week to prepare for Mountain West Conference play is big, as there really is no better time to take stock in the non-conference results and now really turn it on. Air Force already has a 1 – 1 record in conference play so Wyoming has a clean slate and is just now kicking off their MW slate.
Wyoming has certainly known how to hang around with Air Force as they had covered 10 straight times in the series before 2019s 20 – 6 loss to the Falcons on the final day of the regular season. Having missed last year’s affair for the first time in a long time, these two head coaches will be competing for the 8th straight meeting and Craig Bohl knows how to slow down this attack that we are all familiar with.
Wyoming ranks 78th against the run and they are certainly aware that Air Force boasts the #1 rushing offense in the land. No mystery here, Scooby Doo!
Sean Chambers has taken every snap under center for Wyoming, and that certainly brings a stable feeling to the offense. Chambers has completed 57 of his 98 attempts for 750 yards featuring a 5 / 3 TD to INT ratio.
Xazavian Valladay will be toting the rock early and often against the Falcon run defense, but one thing this team can do is stop you from feeling comfortable running the ball. Air Force’s run defense ranks 14th allowing only 89.6 ypg, so he better be ready to run hard and strong for 60 minutes.
Valladay and Chambers will both be seen using their legs to move the chains because their passing game really doesn’t exist either.
Wyoming ranks 105th in offensive passing yards per outing putting up only 187.5 a pop so expect both teams to be grinding out yards on the ground all evening.
Air Force Falcons
Run the ball, run the ball, and then run the ball some more. All right, thank you for being here and we will see you next week… LOL
I mean what can we say other than expect a heavy dose of the running game from Air Force that features the land’s best rushing offense. Only 1 team can claim the #1 spot and Air Force has it averaging 367.4 yards PER SHOW! Phew!
I can’t believe they have 76 passing yards already too, because they might only have 100 all season long. You would think you would have enough trick plays designed to keep a team honest, but Troy Calhoun basically says, “HERE! Stop it if you can and good luck! We’ll see you after the game at the 50-yard line to shake hands and we will be running rampant all over your defense for 60 minutes, have a nice day!”
Haaziq Daniels has the reigns and there has been no one else under center for Coach Calhoun and Mike Theissen who have been together for 15 years running this offense. Daniels is 15 for 33 passing the ball… yeah ok, he has 71 carries for 419 yards while finding the end zone 8 times with his legs too. There are players built to run an offense like this and Daniels couldn’t be more of a perfect fit.
