The Air Force Falcons will look to upset the Michigan Wolverines at the Big House on Saturday. It will be a tough task.

The Air Force Falcons (1-0) will look to upset the Michigan Wolverines (0-1) on Saturday at the Big House in Ann Arbor, Mich. This will be just the second game between the two teams and that game came back on Sept. 28, 1964, a 24-7 victory for Michigan.

The Falcons enter the game at 1-0 following a 49-21 victory over the FCS Idaho State Bengals. While not a top-level win, the Falcons certainly have a bit of confidence heading into one of the toughest stadiums to play at in college football. Senior quarterback Connor Dietz will need to figure out the Michigan defense early on if he hopes to keep the Falcons in this game. Cody Getz, Wes Cobb and Jon Lee will also need to grind it out on the ground.

The Alabama Crimson Tide dissected the Michigan defense on Saturday for a 41-14 victory, but the defending national champions should be able to do stuff like that. Michigan will get back running back Fitzgerald Toussaint, who was suspended one game. A dynamic quarterback like Denard Robinson might frustrate Air Force defenders all day long. He is looking to rebound from a 11-of-26, 200-yard performance, including one touchdown and two interceptions.

Location: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Mich.

TV Schedule: ABC/ESPN2

Odds: Michigan favored by 21.5 points (opening); 21 points (current)
