Over on the Washington State side, they’re 6-6 this year. The Cougars are just 2-3 in their last five games, winning versus Stanford and Oregon State but falling to California, Oregon and Washington otherwise. 

In the loss to the Huskies, Washington State QB Anthony Gordon had two INTs with 308 yards, and Renald Bell had 87 receiving yards on nine catches. Max Borghi led the rush on 50 yards and a TD. 

The Falcons are 6-2 ATS in their last eight in December and 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall. Air Force is 5-2 ATS in their last seven bowl games and 1-4 ATS in their last five Friday games. 

Meanwhile, the Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last five on grass and 4-1 ATS in the last five versus the MWC. Washington State is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. 

Without a ton of national attention, Air Force has quietly rolled their way to a really nice season. The Falcons have tightened the screws on defense over their last five games as well, holding opponents to 13 points or fewer in three of the last five games, and a combined 43 points in the other pair. 

As for Washington State, they’ve faced some tough opponents over the second half of the season, but they’ve been playing with fire on the scoreboard with a one-point win over Oregon State and three losses in their last five games. 

I’m not thrilled about the Cougars right now so I’m going with Air Force to bang out a cover here.
