Why Air Force can cover
The Falcons are consistently a top-five rushing team nationally and have been for most of four decades. They have five players who have already rushed for 100 or more yards and are led by junior fullback Timothy Jackson, who leads the team with 34 carries for 178 yards (5.2 average). Against Navy, he carried 19 times for 118 yards (6.2 average). Jackson missed the last game with an undisclosed injury, but has a chance to play on Friday.
Also leading the rushing attack is junior Brandon Lewis, who has rushed 19 times for 172 yards (9.1 average) and one touchdown. He also has six receptions for 36 yards. In the loss against Boise State, he rushed 10 times for 112 yards and a score. He did not see any action in 2019, but appeared in four games in 2018, with catches in three of those.
Why New Mexico can cover
The Lobos have played teams tough, with two of their three losses by seven points or less. Junior quarterback Tevaka Tuioti leads the team in passing, completing 37 of 66 attempts (56.1 percent) for 475 yards and four scores, but he is questionable after missing the Nevada game with concussion symptoms. Sophomore Trae Hall, who has seen action in two games this season, is expected to start if Tuioti isn’t cleared.
Redshirt junior running back Bobby Cole powers the ground attack and leads the team in rushing with 226 yards on 39 carries (5.8 average) and one score. He has rushed for 90 or more yards in each of the last two games and has been effective in the passing game with three receptions for 22 yards (7.3 average). As a redshirt sophomore, he saw action in all 12 games, starting the season finale at Utah State. For his career, he has carried 66 times for 415 yards (6.3 average) and three touchdowns.
