The Boise State Broncos are headed to the Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colorado to take on the Air Force Falcons on Saturday, Oct. 27. Last Friday, Boise State had a fantastic performance against Colorado State University, winning the game 56-28, along with yet another great victory against the Nevada Wolf Pack, 31-24, on the road. However, they haven’t been overly dominant in Mountain West play this season as they suffered a rough loss against San Diego State at home,19-13 .
On Monday Oct. 22, Troy Calhoun, head coach of Air Force Falcons, announced in a press conference some notable things about his team.
“Each week is different throughout the year,” Calhoun said. “We might use different rotations to change things up. But come game day, every guy out on our field has earned that spot they are in.”
Last Saturday, Air Force proved their worth after tackling the UNLV Rebels 41-35. Air Force’s leading man, quarterback Isaiah Sanders, completed nine of 11 passes for a total of 217 yards and a touchdown during the game.
“They have a fine squad,” Calhoun said of the Broncos. “They run it well; they have two guys who get pretty good carries, good in the box and can still break a run. And Rypien has played a lot of football; he’s a superb quarterback and will continue to play after this year.”
Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin spoke at a press conference on Monday, Oct. 22. During this conference he spoke on behalf of his team and how they plan on handling Air Force this week.
“This week we need to prepare ourselves to be in the right mind set and ready to be the best we can be this week,” Harsin said. “During practices we have to focus more on film and studying plays. If we don’t it, will show during the game.”
Last year, Boise State beat Air Force 44-19 at home, so it will be interesting to see how the Broncos do on the Falcons’ turf and how they plan on grabbing another win from an aggressive defense.
“They have always tackled well on defense, and their special team is sold and excellent in the red zone when approached,” Harsin said.
The Broncos kickoff against the Falcons at 5 p.m. Mountain Time. The game can be viewed on CBS Sports.
