Sep 29, 2018; Laramie, WY, USA; Boise State Broncos cheerleaders perform against the Wyoming Cowboys during the first quarter at Jonah Field War Memorial Stadium.

Through 3 Quarters

The Air Force Falcons were expected to take an 'L' in this one, but so far it isn't playing out to script. They have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of the Boise State Broncos 21-14.

RB Brad Roberts has led the way so far for the Falcons, as he has rushed for two TDs and 100 yards on 20 carries. No one has had a standout game offensively for Boise State, but they have gotten scores from RB Andrew Van Buren and WR Stefan Cobbs.

This is the least points the Broncos have had yet this year going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know

The Air Force Falcons have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Boise State Broncos and are hoping to record their first win since Nov. 25 of 2016. Air Force and Boise State will face off in a Mountain West battle at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday at Albertsons Stadium. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

It was all tied up 14-14 at the half for the Falcons and the Wyoming Cowboys last week, but Air Force stepped up in the second half for a 24-14 victory. It was another big night for Air Force's RB Brad Roberts, who rushed for one TD and 140 yards on 33 carries.

Meanwhile, Boise State beat the BYU Cougars 26-17 last week. The team accrued 20 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. The Broncos' RB Cyrus Habibi-Likio filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown.

Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 14. K Jonah Dalmas delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.

The Falcons are expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.

Air Force is now 5-1 while the Broncos sit at 3-3. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Air Force is 242nd worst in the nation in passing yards per game, with only 82.3 on average. Boise State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 224th fewest rushing yards per game in the nation, having accrued only 85.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
