Boise State Vs. Air Force Final Score: Falcons Stay Competitive With Broncos, But Lose, 37-26

When the odds makers started making the line for the Air Force Falcons' game against the Boise St. Broncos, the former wasn't shown much respect since they were underdogs by 30 points. The Falcons kept the game close at times and always had the Broncos on alert. Still, all that resulted in was a 37-26 loss.

The Falcons went down early to the Broncos after Kellen Moore threw a touchdown on the first drive of the game, but momentum shifted in the second quarter when Broncos running back Doug Martin fumbled the ball. Air Force quarterback Tim Jefferson completed a 90-yard drive by punching the ball in from the one-yard line.

Down 20-10 at halftime, the Falcons went on to bring the game to within seven points on two different occasions. However, the Broncos answered back each time the Falcons scored. But the Falcons rushing attack frustrated the Broncos defense all day long, including several long downs converted into firsts. The team collectively rushed for 275 yards, including 104 by Mike DeWitt.

Tim Jefferson was just 6-of-14 for 132 yards and a touchdown, but he also had two touchdown runs. Kellen Moore, on the other hand, was 23-of-29 for 282 yards and three touchdowns. He picked up his 45th career win, tying Texas Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy.

The 7-0 Broncos take next Saturday off while the 3-4 Falcons receive a breather with New Mexico on the slate for next week.

Boise State Vs. Air Force Halftime Score: Broncos Starting Pulling Away With Late TDs, 20-10

After playing the Boise St. Broncos close for the first quarter and a half, the Air Force Falcons are seemingly letting the game slip away at halftime. The Broncos lead, 20-10.

A defensive struggle saw the first quarter end with the Broncos in a 7-0 lead, but in the second quarter Doug Martin's fumble turned the momentum in favor of Air Force. Tim Jefferson led the team to a touchdown on a 90-yard drive. However, Kellen Moore immediately responded with a touchdown pass to Matt Miller on a 19-yard pass.

Air Force attempted a fake punt on the next drive, but Mikel Hunter fumbled the ball after a hit by Bryan Douglas. Hunter White picked up the ball at Air Force's 16-yard line and returned it for a touchdown and the 20-7 lead.

Parker Herrington kicked a 37-yard field goal at the end of the half to make it 20-10.

Boise State Vs. Air Force Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And Notes

The Air Force Falcons face the Boise St. Broncos for the first time in school history and they do it as massive underdogs. The line has moved to 30 points, but the Falcons could make this a more competitive game than the odds makers believe it will be. A run-option offense could give the Broncos defense fits throughout the day.

Kellen Moore can tie Colt McCoy's NCAA record of 45 career victories with a win on Saturday. He beat Colorado State for his 44th last week and will stretch out that record by several extra wins by the time his Broncos play in a bowl game in December or January.
