Next up: Oregon in the Las Vegas Bowl, December 21 (ESPN).
It was ugly, folks. The Frogs led 38-0 in the fourth quarter before Air Force blocked a punt and ran it in for the score. It was so lopsided that the Falcons ran only seven plays in the entire first quarter. TCU meanwhile won its seventh straight after back-to-back losses against BYU and Utah and reached 10 wins for the fifth time in the last seven years.
Next up: Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl December 19.
When the wheels are falling off your wagon, any win is a great win. The Aztecs finished tied for sixth in the conference with Air Force instead of tied for seventh with Colorado State and managed to avoid becoming the only team in SDSU football history to lose 10 games in a season, although the 2-9 1983 squad only had 11 tries. The win will help quell a storm that erupted earlier this week at a booster luncheon at which former Aztec and NFL great Fred Dryer challenged first year coach Chuck Long.
New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and UNLV did not play. Utah will face Tulsa December 23 in the Armed Forces (Ft. Worth) Bowl, while New Mexico will inaugurate the New Mexico Bowl against San Jose State the same day.
