The Air Force Falcons and Colorado St. Rams are squaring off on Saturday afternoon in the battle for I-25. Both teams are looking for their first conference win of the year. For Colorado State this is their first conference game, but for Air Force they are 0-1 and are coming off a shocking road loss to the UNLV Rebels last week.
Colorado State is riding a three-game losing streak, and their most current loss was a 12-point loss to the Utah State Aggies, a future Mountain West team.
Last year's game saw the Falcons easily defeat the Rams 45-21, and the last time that Colorado State has defeated Air Force was back in 2005. Colorado State is led by running back Chris Nwoke, and in the 2011 matchup he rushed for 269 yards and two touchdowns.
