Air Force Falcons vs Navy Midshipmen 10/05/2019
Air Force Falcons
The Falcons are the favorite for this game, and with good reason. Getting a 3-1 record is no joke, with their sole loss looking more like an almost-win against the Boise State Broncos. The Falcons boast a relentless defense that is dependent on running, with an average of 334 yards. This run-centric offense led them to a whopping 41 points against the unfortunate San Jose State. Even though the focus of the Falcons is on running, they still throw pretty decently, with Donald Hammond III being able to score 4 touchdowns via 369-yard throwing and 2 interceptions. He’s supported by Kadin Remsberg, who scored three touchdowns with a 342-yard total ownage.
Players to watch: Donald Hammond III QB 18 CMP 32 ATT 369 YDS 56.3 CMP% 11.5 AVG 81 LNG 4 TD 2 INT; Kadin Remsberg RB 58 ATT 342 YDS 5.9 AVG 25 LNG; Taven Birdow FB 64 ATT 338 YDS 5.3 AVG 41 LNG; Geraud Sanders WR 13 REC 291 YDS 22.4 AVG 64 LNG; Benjamin Waters WR 4 REC 111 YDS 27.8 AVG 81 LNG
The Navy Midshipmen, meanwhile, are still reeling from their 35-23 matchup versus Memphis. The heroics of Malcolm Perry must still be acknowledged, however- he successfully blazed through 2 touchdowns, a touchdown throw plus a total of 82 yards passing and 91 yards rushing. Their two victories were sealed against relatively easier matchups wherein they were able to move the ball freely. Their statistics are decent, with an average of 36.7 points each game with 334.7 yards on the ground. The focus of the Midshipmen will be on dominating the line of scrimmage and keeping the strong running game of their opponents in check. A strong defense will be a huge boost to their game, and it’s not too late for them to find tactics that will limit their opponents’ movements. Just add in a strong shot of offense, and the Midshipmen may be able to pull off a wild-card win!
