The Utes and Falcons are both looking to snap their losing streaks when they battle Saturday. Air Force is on a four game skid, and the Utes have lost just one in a row, but two of their last three. Like all games in league play, this is very important for both teams.
Air Force desperately needs a win. They are already (0-4) in conference play and have to face UNLV on the road following the Utah game. There is a good chance that the Falcons will be (0-6) in conference when they face Wyoming at home.
Utah is coming off a home loss to San Diego State in which they nearly won at the buzzer. Utah sits at (9-9, 2-2) and would fall below .500 with a loss to AFA. Utah may need this win as much as the Falcons do.
The Utes should win, but that does not ease any Utah fans. It seems that whenever the Utes expect to win, they find a way to lose. Air Force has really struggled on the road in MWC play with their last win coming in February last year so expect a Utah victory.
