The Air Force Falcons had no issues in winning their season opener over the Idaho St. Bengals Saturday afternoon. The Falcons won 49-21 and they were led by running back Cody Getz who rushed for a career-high 218 yards on just 17 carries, good for three touchdowns.
Heading into the game the running back situation was not set, but after Saturday's performance it is safe to say that Getz has earned the starting job.
Falcons starting quarterback Connor Dietz also had a great game, as he rushed for 74 yards and a touchdown on 7 carries, plus he completed 8-of-11 passes for 149 yards.
Air Force raced out to a 28-0 halftime lead over Idaho State and never looked back. In the second, Idaho State did get on the board first, but Air Force responded to that, as well as to all three Idaho State touchdowns.
