The Air Force Falcons hope to improve to 2-0 on the 2012 season on Saturday, when the Falcons head to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on the Michigan Wolverines.

Air Force opened up the season with a 49-21 victory over Idaho State. Cody Getz ran for 218 yards on just 17 attempts, as Air Force put up a staggering 626 yards of total offense, including 484 rushing yards.

Needless to say, Michigan will prove to be a much bigger test for Air Force.

The Wolverines will be hungry for a win, following a 41-14 drubbing at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide in Week 1. Michigan came into the year as the No. 8 team in the country, a ranking that will surely drop when the latest polls are announced.

Still, Michigan remains a good football team -- and it'll likely be out for blood on Saturday against the Falcons.

Air Force will need to use the running game well in order to control the pace of the game -- and keep the ball away from Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson.

Game time, TV channel: 1:30 p.m. MT, ABC or ESPN2

Point spread: Michigan by 21½
