Saturday October 30, 2010 7:30 PM EST

Line: Utah -7

Utah last week started out slow and ended up blowing out Colorado State 59-6 at home. The Utes continue to roll and now travel to Air Force to face a much tougher opponent. Air Force started the season 5-1, but have lost their last two road games. They now head back home to face a very tough Utah team.

Stats to consider:

Utah Utes:

  • The Utes are 7-0 with a 4-0 MWC record.
  • They are 3-0 on the road and all 3 victories came by more than 24 points.
  • Points against per game: 12.9 (3rd)
  • Points for per game: 47.7 (3rd)
  • Rushing yards a game: 193.3 (29th)
  • Passing yards a game (24th)

Air Force Falcons:

  • The Falcons are 5-3 with a 3-2 MWC record.
  • They are 4-0 at home, but none of those victories came against very competitive programs.
  • Points against per game: 21.8 (45th)
  • Points for a game: 29.9 (51st)
  • Passing yards a game: 113.8 (116th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 326.5 (1st)

What to watch for:

  • Utah has been super solid on both sides of the football as they rank inside the top 3 in points scored and points allowed. They have has only one close game on the year and that was a week one win vs Pittsburgh 27-24 in overtime.
  • The rushing game has been solid for the Utes this season. Eddie Wide leads the team with 409 yards and 7 TDs. RB Matt Asiata has also been big for Utah with 393 yards and 5 TDs.
  • Air Force know how they can win the football game. It’s through their running game. They bring in the best rushing game in the nation with 326.5 yards a game. RB Asher Clark leads the team with 682 yards and 3 TDs. RB Jared Tew has 540 yards with 3 TDs as well.

Just as Air Force has a formula for victory, Utah has one as well. The Utes will look to stop the Air Force running game to try to make this an easy sports pick. Last week Air Force was held under 100 yards by TCU and lost the football game 38-7. Look for Utah to be too much on offense and defense for Air Force.
