The Fresno State Bulldogs and the Air Force Falcons will meet up on the college football field Saturday.
Fresno enters this game at 2-2 overall. The Bulldogs lost their first two to USC and Minnesota but since have taken out Sacramento State and New Mexico State.
In the NM State win, Fresno State QB Jorge Reyna had 147 yards passing, and Jalen Cropper led the rush on 118 yards and a score. Emoryie Edwards caught eight passes for 70 yards to lead the team.
Over on the Air Force side, they’re 3-2 this year. The Falcons have beaten Colgate, Colorado and SJSU while dropping games to Boise State and Navy.
In the Navy loss, Air Force QB Donald Hammond had 205 yards and an INT, and also led the rush with 77 yards and a score. Benjamin Waters was the top receiver there with 128 yards on four catches.
The Bulldogs are 5-0 ATS in their last five on grass and 16-4-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Fresno State is 21-6-1 ATS in their last 28 conference games and 28-9-2 ATS in their last 39 overall.
Meanwhile, the Falcons are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 on grass and 9-19-1 ATS in their last 29 in October. Air Force is 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall and 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 conference games.
Fresno State could easily be undefeated at this point, as their two losses came by eight and three points. Since then the Bulldogs have continued to score well, with 64 combined points.
Air Force has posted a couple of good offensive games in their last pair, but I don’t think they’ll dominate here. I’m going with Fresno State on the cover. I think the Bulldogs can get into a victory in this one if they're on their game.
