What to Know
The Air Force Falcons have the luxury of staying home another week and will welcome the Florida Atlantic Owls at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 25 at Falcon Stadium. Keep an eye on the score for this one: these two teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet Saturday.
Don’t be fooled by the insanely high score: we promise Air Force and the Utah State Aggies were playing football. Last week, the Falcons were within a late touchdown of stealing the win, but they took the “L” against Utah State 49-45.
Meanwhile, Florida Atlantic made easy work of the Fordham Rams last week and carried off a 45-14 victory. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Florida Atlantic had established a 28-7 advantage.
Air Force is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
The Falcons and the Owls now sit at an identical 2-1. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Air Force is 188th worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with six on the season. Florida Atlantic has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 187th most rushing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 189.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
