Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Air Force (-) Over/Under Against the Spread - Air Force (7-5) Washington State (4-8)


A battle of differing offensive philosophies will take place at the Cheez-It Bowl this year. Air Force, one of the leaders in rushing yards in the country will play against the leader in passing yards in Washington State. Mike Leech’s group has seen a distinct drop off from last year’s defensive unit that was giving up close to 25 PPG on defense. This year they are at 31.4. Air Force has played strong this year on both sides of the ball with their only two losses coming to ranked teams (Boise State and Navy).


The Degenerate Menace Says: The easiest way to stop a prolific passing offense is to keep them off the field. That fits the bill for Air Force as they are one of the best rushing teams in the nation. The Falcons have also proved that they can play with the big boys as they defeated Tennessee in Knoxville early in the year. The computer likes the service academy and so do I.


Prediction: Air Force 42 - Washington State 38
