We’re getting to the part of the season where teams start to find themselves- for better or worse. After surrendering yardage at an alarming rate last week, the Falcons defense suffocated the Owls, as the the offense ran them out of the building. Outstanding performances delivered by both the offense and the defense led to a 31-7 drubbing of FAU.

Despite entering the game with one of the nations top offenses, FAU couldn’t ride those credentials to success. The Falcons defense which was embarrassed last week showed up in a big way, making adjustments in critical areas. The Owls struggled to gain any ground against Air Force, and that is probably more emblematic of what most expected from the Falcon defense all year.

Offensively the Falcons are hitting a gear that should put the whole Mountain West on notice. The chains kept moving as Air Force moved the ball like a well oiled machine. Add in some explosive plays, which included a 90+ yard touchdown run by Haaziq Daniels, and this is a unit to be reckoned with.

One of the very noticeable things within the great play of the defense, was the long awaited entry of defensive back Trey Taylor. In his first game as a starter, Taylor showed why so much anticipation surrounded his entry into the lineup, as he flashed all over the field.

Unfortunately, not everything went as ideally, as the special teams kicking game still struggles, despite making a change in favor of Anthony Rodriguez. And of greater consequence, we are awaiting details on a non-contact injury that cause standout tight end, Kyle Patterson exit the game early, and he never returned.

The Falcons will head back into Divisional play next week as they get on the road to New Mexico and try to get in the win column, in Conference play.
