Stevens will be great from the pocket, but hell get picked off once, and that will end up being the deciding factor in a win for Air Force. Romines return will have a huge impact on this game. Owens will find running room and carve a path to the end zone to help out. Hes going to run for about 75 yards on double-digit carries, but hes also going to make the throws he needs to make to keep the Falcons ahead.

Air Force hasnt been winning by wide margins when it has won and I think its a lot to ask of the Falcons to beat the Rams by 14 points. The Rams are obviously pretty poor on both sides of the ball, but I think they can handle themselves a little better against a straight-forward Air Force offense. Air Force doesnt have enough consistency on either side of the ball to trust that much.

Air Force (3-4) vs. Colorado State (6-2) Game Preview

Stevens is the main catalyst for a Colorado State offense that is currently averaging 33.9 points on 507.0 total yards per game. The Rams jumped out to an early 21-10 lead but sputtered offensively in the second half. QB Nick Stevens threw his 19th and 20th touchdown pass of the season as he passed for just under his season average of 310.8 yards per game. On the other side of the ball, the Rams are limiting their opponents to an average of just 24.5 points per game. Colorado State is looking to win their fifth game in a row after beating the New Mexico Lobos 27-24 last weekend. Colorado State has also managed to force 11 turnovers so far this season, which gives them a positive turnover margin (+1).

was given 10 carries, and he rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown. Izzy Matthews toted the rock over the goal line twice en route to 55 yards on 10 attempts. Dalyn Dawkins didnt find his way into the end zone, but he did take his 10 carries for 35 rushing yards. Colorado State did distribute carries in the running game fairly evenly, and it worked out. Marvin Kinsey Jr.

He has thrown for 1,103 yards and five touchdowns, but also has six interceptions. Offensively, Colorado State is putting up just 23.2 points and 408.1 yards per game. Izzy Matthews has rushed for 665 yards and four touchdowns. Preston Williams is the leading receiver with 84 catches for 1,097 yards and 11 touchdowns. Their run defense is giving up over 200 yards per game. Collin Hill has taken over starting QB duties as of late. The Rams are really a mess on defense right now, allowing 37.6 points and 449.9 yards per game.

Stevens has to continue to protect the football, take what the defense gives him and lead the Rams down the field. But he has to make Colorado State pay if it tries to cheat the run. If he can air it out and prevent Air Force from stacking the box, the Rams will be in good shape. If Romine can be accurate with the football through the air, this will be interesting. Their games are very different, but both play huge roles for their respective teams as every quarterback does. As for Romine, he needs to get back to moving the sticks with his running ability.

I think the clear value in this spot is on the Colorado State side of things. The problem for Air Force in this particular match-up is their mediocre defense. The Falcons cant seem to really stop anybody, ranking outside of the top 100 nationwide in scoring defense. They are now tasked with facing a top 40 offense that is playing at home. There is no question that the Falcons have a very impressive rushing attack. They are undoubtedly one of the top few teams in the entire country on the ground.
