After beating up on Idaho State in their opener, the Air Force Falcons came up just short in their attempt to beat the No. 18 Michigan Wolverines, falling 31-25.
Despite the loss, though, the Falcons are double digit favorites when they travel to Las Vegas to play the UNLV Rebels on Saturday. Winless in each of their first three games, the Rebels will host their fourth straight game of the season and look for their first win after one score losses to each Minnesota, Northern Arizona and Washington State.
Against UNLV, expect the Falcons' offense to again rely on their strong rushing attack featuring Cody Getz and dual-threat quarterback Connor Dietz. The combination tallied 196 yards rushing against the Wolverines, including three Getz touchdowns, while Dietz passed for an additional 127 yards.
