Game Day Vitals: Air Force vs. Boise State - 01/29/14

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Air Force comes to Boise for what should be a gimme for the Broncos, right? Well, maybe... Air Force does stand at 3-4 in MWC, but those three wins have come against the three bottom teams in the league: San Jose State, Fresno State, and a fading Utah State. I don't expect Tre' Coggins and the Falcons to just roll over but I like the Broncos in this one.

Interesting Stat Department: Boise State is 28th nationally in rebound margin at +6.0 rebounds per game. Air Force, on the other hand, is tied for 128th at +2.0. Advantage: Broncos.
