That’s exactly what the Air Force football team has done the last 2 weeks. The Falcons are one of the hottest teams in the nation. Their last loss was 7 weeks ago. And they have had to come up with some creative ways to get wins. 2 weeks ago they trailed Colorado State 14-0, yet stormed back in the 4th quarter to beat the Rams. Last week New Mexico decided to fully commit to stopping the Air Force rushing attack. So Quarterback Donald Hammond throws for a personal best 327 yards and 4 touchdowns to beat the Lobos. Good teams find ways to win. No football game is easy, despite what the final score may suggest. Whether it’s a goal line stand like the Falcons had at the end of the Army game, or a powerful offensive night as Air Force beat Hawaii, the Falcons can win games a lot of different ways. That’s a hard team to play, let alone beat. Better bring your “A” game. Saturday’s matchup against Wyoming represents a different test. The Cowboys offense is pretty simple-run the football. Their defense stops the run-they are ranked 7th in the nation in that category. Yet don’t look past the Falcons to figure out some way, some opportunity to figure it out. Maybe it’s a game winning field goal by Jake Koehnke….Perhaps a late touchdown by the offense. Somehow, some way, the Falcons find a way.
Air Force and Wyoming-Saturday at noon on 740 KVOR.
