Nevada vs. Air Force 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

MARCO GARCIA-US PRESSWIRE

Air Force will try to stop the nation's leading rusher a week after allowing the most yards to a single player in conference history.

The Air Force Falcons host the Nevada Wolf Pack on Friday, a matchup difficult to game plan for both teams.

Air Force is challenged with defending Stefphon Jefferson, the Nevada running back who leads the nation with 156 rushing yards per game. Jefferson will attack the Falcons' defense one week after they gave up a Mountain West-record 338 yards rushing to New Mexico running back Kasey Carrier.

According to Irv Moss of the Denver Post, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun was coy and brief:

"I imagine his (Jefferson) mouth is watering."

For Nevada, it must defend an offense that is difficult to prepare for, and it must do so on a short week of practice with a Friday kickoff.

The Wolf Pack are a three-point road favorite in Friday's game, and the over/under is set at 65. Nevada only has two losses this season, and both were by one point: a 32-31 loss to South Florida, and a 39-38 loss to San Diego State last Saturday.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. MT on Friday. The game will be televised on the CBS Sports Network.
