Air Force welcomes Boise State to the hypoxia zone, hoping that home field advantage will help them beat the Broncos for the fourth time in five tries and that the last meeting with Brett Rypien.
The Falcons have been able to win two of three with Rypien under center, but he has continued to develop and mature as a quarterback, and the defense will have their hands full all game tonight. As we have noted, the game plan will more than likely involve taking the run game away and forcing Rypien and the Broncos receivers to beat them through the air.
Another critical element will be whether or not Isaiah Sanders can follow up his outstanding offensive performance from last week against UNLV and continue to bring balance to the Falcons O. If he puts up another 100/100 game, this could be a closer game than expected.
