One season passed since Air Force had one the worst years in the history of their school, where they went 2-10, and now, in 2014, pay per head wagering services could see that the Falcons were able to bounce back and finish their year with a great record of 9-3. Western Michigan also had a very ugly 2013, as they finished the season with a very embarrassing 1-11 record, but this year they went 8-4, making a proper comeback.
Western Michigan’s passing offenses are one of the best in the nation, thanks to QB Zach Terrell, who was able to improve in almost every one of the game’s facets from a season back. The QB was able to pass for 3,146 yards, 23 TD and 10 picks, and 70% of his passes were completed. WR Corey Davis is the player who leads all of the targets with 1,232 receiving yards to go along with 12 TD’s made on 70 receptions, and WR Daniel Braverman leads with 79 catches made for 912 yards and six TD’s. When it comes to rushing, RB Jarvion Franklin is the leader, having recorded an amazing 1,525 and 24 TD’s, which is a very impressive feat.
This season, Air Force had a ranking of eighth place in the country on the ground with 272 yards-per-game. Pay per head wagering services saw that RB Jacobi Owens was the team’s best rusher, as the player recorded 1,054 yards and 5 TD’s on 5.2 yards-per-carry. Second place goes to QB Kale Pearson, with the player recording six rushing TD’s as well as 646 yards. In the team’s passing game, Pearson was quite useful, as the player was able to throw for 1,513 yards, 14 TD’s, and only 3 picks. WR Jalen Robinette was his top target, as for 763 yards he caught 41 passes and 4 TD’s.
The Broncos have been nothing special at all with their defense, but they were still one of the MAC’s better teams. Western Michigan have a ranking of 39th place when it comes to allowed points, and in total yards surrendered each week they’re 48th place. The Falcons are on the same position with their team, as they just proved to be average, with a scoring defense ranked at 43rd place, as well as 64th place in their total allowed yards.
Fans all over the country are expecting a very interesting showdown in the Idaho Potato Bowl when the Falcons and Broncos face each other, and believe that this clash is not one to be missed.
