In a game from NCAA Football Week 8, we will see Air Force at UNLV.
UNLV doesn’t have any problems on offense but their defense is leaky at best. They allowed at least 50 points for the second straight time in last 2 weeks. Utah State Aggies took advantage of their defense liabilities and they had 12.2 yards per catch. Max Gilliam threw for 250 yards which was good for 3 touchdowns and a single interception. Their rushing attack is very good and it is usually averaging over 200 yards per contest.
Air Force have one of the best rushing attacks in college football, being ranked 13th. Their rushers picked up 214 yards last week against the Aztecs in a narrow loss. It was a defensive battle and the more focused team came out on top. Air Force have good pieces on defense and they are holding teams to just 21.8 points per game. Their option offense is averaging over 350 yards per game.
Air Force will certainly win this one since UNLV just won’t be able to stop any plays on defense. Their option offense will be a nightmare for the opposition’s defense and they won’t be able to stop it. I believe that Air Force will cover the spread but the game won’t be high-scoring because they have a good defense and UNLV won’t score like they used to.
