Why Air Force can cover

Air Force leads the nation in rushing with a 508.5 average. The Falcons rushed for 582 yards in the season opener vs. Northern Iowa, which is the sixth most in school history and the most since rushing for 595 against Tennessee State in 2011. Air Force rushed for 435 yards vs. Colorado. The Falcons lead the nation by 206.5 yards per game, led by senior running back Brad Roberts, who has carried 32 times for 288 yards (9.0 average) and four touchdowns.

Senior quarterback Haaziq Daniels is a dual threat on offense. He has completed just 4 of 11 passes for 117 yards (10.6 average) and one touchdown. Daniels has also rushed 21 times for 136 yards (6.5 average) and two touchdowns. He is the only FBS player to hold school records for both longest run and pass. Daniels set both last season, setting the Air Force record for longest run with a 94-yard dash for a touchdown against Florida Atlantic. He set the passing record with a 92-yard touchdown toss to Brandon Lewis vs. Colorado State.

Why Wyoming can cover

Wyoming junior quarterback Andrew Peasley was selected as the Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in leading Wyoming to a 40-37 double-overtime home win over Tulsa two weeks ago and has played well since a tough performance at Illinois. Against Tulsa, the Cowboys trailed 34-24 with 14:54 remaining in regulation when Peasley guided them to two scoring drives to send the game into overtime. He finished the game completing 20 of 30 passes (66.7%) for 256 yards and two touchdowns. Last week against Northern Colorado, Peasley completed 19 of 30 passes (63.3%) for 144 yards in a 33-10 victory.

Wyoming also boasts a strong kicking game, led by sophomore kicker John Hoyland, who earned Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week honors two weeks ago. Hoyland tied a career long with a 55-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to pull the Cowboys within a touchdown vs. Tulsa. He then kicked a 25-yard field goal in the first overtime before winning the game with a 30-yarder. He was also 4-for-4 on PATs, and had six touchbacks on seven kickoff attempts. Last week, Hoyland was 4-for-4 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points.
