WHAT’S AT STAKE?
No. 25 Boise State moved into the rankings after a 42-13 win over Utah State last weekend. It’s the 19th straight season in which the Broncos have appeared in the poll for at least a week. That’s tied for the seventh-longest streak in the country. Air Force is 4-17 under coach Troy Calhoun against ranked teams. The Falcons last win over a ranked foe was at home in 2016 when they beat No. 20 Boise State 27-20.
Boise State QB Hank Bachmeier threw for 263 yards and three TDs in the win over the Aggies. He also ran for another. The challenge for the young Air Force defense will be applying pressure to Bachmeier. The Falcons are 23-4 over the last seven seasons when forcing two or more turnovers.
