New Mexico @ Air Force Football Preview

(4-4) (5-2)

Falcon Stadium 6PM MT TV:CBS College SportsCBS College PPV Radio: 770 KKOB or 740 KVOR

This game is very interesting New Mexico is coming off of a huge victory by scoring 70 against San Diego State, while Air Force gutted out a tough win over UNLV.

New Mexico still is not stable at quarterback, because last week all the scoring came from the rushing duo of Rodney Ferguson and James Wright who both combined for 260 yards and four touchdowns by Ferguson.  Also, the Lobo defense was able to create turnovers and score points.

The Lobo defense could be the key to victory this week against Air Force, because turnovers is what has hurt the Falcons in some games most recently the Navy game.  New Mexico needs to use the same game plan they did against BYU and San Diego State which is to run the ball and control the clock, because the Air Force run option eats up clock.  If the Lobos can at worst go even in the time of possession that is a good way that  New Mexico can win the game.

Air Force just needs to keep doing what they do in running the ball, which the Falcons are third in the nation in rushing yards, and limit turnovers and mistakes.  The Falcons at home are tough because of the altitude and home crowd of cadets which can be loud and intimidating even though the Falcons have struggled at home with one win but have been close in all three games.

If the Falcons can get their running game in gear, then look for quarterback Tim Jefferson to beat the Lobo defense with the well timed pass to beat the sucked in defense after running the ball play after play.

This should be a good game, because both teams are eveningly matched and this Thursday night game gives the schools a ton of exposure.

Final Score: Air Force 30 New Mexico 28
