Final game for Air Force is huge
The game that was postponed then brought back is here as Air Force travels cross-country to take on an Army team that is just OK, and if we are being honest.
This is the 49th edition of this game and it is winner-take-all for the Commander-In-Chief award since both the Falcons and Black Knights defeated Navy this season. Army won 15-0 over Navy while Air Force was thouroughly dominant by winning 40-7. That difference in outcomes makes the field goal line in favor of Air Force seem far too low.
The Black Knights have an 8-2 record but they have played three FCS teams and have a few decent wins over UTSA and Georgia Southern. Not entirely a tough slate this year. They did play undefeated Cincinnati to a 14-point game.
Also, this is not the same Army team of past years that run like crazy over defenses with its triple-option and heave fullback dive style of offense. They are fourth in yards per game but on a per play basis they are 43rd in the country. It took a lot of carries to be productive which is not great considering those trio of FCS teams they played.
Air Force’s defense is not amazing but it will hold more resistance compared to what Army has faced on about half of its schedule. In five games, the Falcons gave up just three rushing touchdowns, 3.62 yards a carry which is good enough for 29th in the nation, and 12th in yards per game allowing just 105 yards per game.
This game could get ugly if the Falcons ground game gets going and there is no reason to see why it wouldn’t since Kadin Remsberg is more healthy after suffering a collarbone/chest injury. He returned to action against Utah State last week and rushed just 11 times for 107 yards and a score. Remsberg looked good in that game and should be better after playng last week.
Unless, Air Force’s front seven falls apart and the Army defense has its best game this should be a smooth victory for the Falcons.
