SCOUT­ING THE FAL­CONS

Albuquerque Journal - - HIGH SCHOOLS -

The Fal­cons, with their triple-op­tion of­fense, lead the Moun­tain West Con­fer­ence in rush­ing yards per game (241) and time of pos­ses­sion (33:14 per game). That has helped them to stay close in most con­tests. As an ex­am­ple, UNM was blown out by Utah State, 61-19. Air Force, how­ever, lost to the Ag­gies, 42-32.

The Fal­cons are look­ing to snap a two-game los­ing skid. They lost to Boise State, 48-38, on Oct. 27, and to Army, 17-14, last week, when they nearly over­came a 14-0 half­time deficit. Air Force has two quar­ter­backs ca­pa­ble of di­rect­ing its of­fense in Isa­iah San­ders and Don­ald Ham­mond III. Last week, Ham­mond, a sopho­more, came on in re­lief at half­time. He rushed for 33 yards and a touch­down on 10 car­ries, and he hit seven of 15 passes for 120 yards. He has played in six games this sea­son and has started two.
