Everyone talks about kicking out SJSU.  At least they aren't out trying to hurt people every week.

Air Force is the school that should be forced out of the MWC.   I doubt another conference would even take them.  Certainly not if the coaches had any say.

Try this link...... I'm a subscriber and did not know the link I posted was a pay link. Try this one and see if it works and let me know. Go Falcons

That article is interesting.  A very big reach if looking for a reason to expect a win, but still interesting factoids.  I saw nothing to make me think AFA has a shot in that article.  For some reason though, I think AFA has a shot.

Lots of references to SDSU, Scouts are NOT SDSU more along the lines (this year) of NM or SJSU. This is a BAD Scout team, no speed and already injuries have crippled.

Take Boise big!

Of course they do, we play like absolute dog shit @ AF.

I can feel it in my plums that we redeem ourselves this weekend!

Oh great, the annual anus pucker game.

I respect the hell out of AFA, and love having them in-Conference, but I hate playing them. 

My fav is when AFA and BYU play ... all the chop blocks and nut punches make the game almost as fun to watch as the old Bumfight show.

The team that wins that game is the one that gets away with the most nut punches or chop blocks.

Glad to see blue(tool)rules is alive and well. Last year AF vs BSU there was one penalty for illegal block and it was by BSU.  Funny how that is ignored.

With that said....

 AF vs BSU http://ricksfalconreview.blogspot.com/

Big game with a traditionally tough Boise State team as kickoff is at 5pm MDT at Falcon Stadium (am740 and CBSSports). The Falcons have won the last two times at home and are 3-1 in the last 4 years losing badly last year on the blue turf of BSU. BSU strength is their passing offense matched up with AF's weakness in the secondary which has been exploited this season. Most pundits recognize the improvement in the Falcon rush attack that has the ability to make BSU one dimensional but that still pits a strength against a weakness.

 

Some very good reads below to breakdown the game. My thoughts are simple:
-Time of possession for AF is key to a win. BSU WILL score but we need to keep their defenders on the field for 80% of the game and 'then' when we get that one stop on defense we score again.
-Do not get far behind BSU or the chance of an upset is slim.
-Take the early lead using the pass early to set up the run. Rick '77
