Army-Air Force stat comparison

Air Force Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

The Falcons are powered by a strong rushing game, running for over 300 yards per outing and throwing for just over 100 yards. Air Force also has a balanced defense giving up around 200 rushing and passing yards per games. The Falcons are 1-2 in their past three games, scoring 29 points per game and giving up 27.

Weaknesses:

Army should to try and take advantage of Air Force's split defense as a chance to try and balance out their rushing and passing games. The Falcons passing game has been struggling this season so look for the Black Knights to try to force them to do just that.
