Result:
WIN

On paper this game looks like a total mismatch. Utah has the more athletic team, and has a big advantage in team speed, and the better QB. But the game isn't played on paper. The fact is, Utah has never solved the triple option. Look back to the Bowl game against Navy last year where Utah struggled to stop the Navy triple option, allowing 316 yards rushing at 5.4 yards per carry. Last year this Air Force team went to Utah as a TD underdog, and ground out 334 yards with this offense, racking up 5.3 yards per carry. The Falcons have averaged about 30 per game vs Utah over six years. They will certainly move the ball, and offer enough resistance on defense to hang within this inflated number.
