In their second game, the Aggies faced Iowa and suffered a 24-14 loss. Despite the loss, Utah State's offense continued to perform well, putting up 421 total yards.

Defensively, the Aggies have room for improvement, allowing an average of 354.0 total yards per game. However, their offensive prowess can help compensate for defensive shortcomings.

 

Air Force Falcons

The Air Force Falcons have had a strong start to the season with a perfect 2-0 record. Their offense, led by quarterback Z. Larrier, has been efficient, accumulating 363.5 total yards per game. Larrier has thrown for 109 yards and one touchdown.

In their second game, the Falcons faced Robert Morris and secured a convincing 42-7 win. Larrier had a limited role, as the ground game dominated with 309 rushing yards.

Defensively, Air Force has been impressive, allowing an average of only 118.0 total yards per game. Their ability to stifle opposing offenses makes them a formidable opponent.

 

Prediction

Despite the Aggies' 1-1 record and Air Force's 2-0 start, this game has the potential to be closer than the spread suggests. Utah State's potent offense, led by Legas, has the ability to put up points against the Falcons' defense.

Air Force's defense has been solid, but they haven't faced an offense as dynamic as Utah State's this season. Expect Legas and the Aggies to find success through the air and on the ground.

While Air Force has been efficient, the Aggies have the firepower to keep this game competitive. A +9 points spread seems generous, given Utah State's offensive capabilities. In the last 10 head to head games the average score is 30.8-30.6 favoring the Aggies.

If you're looking for a betting opportunity, consider the Aggies covering the +9 points spread. Utah State's offense should keep them within striking distance, making this game an exciting matchup to watch.
