Air Force senior FB Jacob Stafford rushed for 112 yards on 14 carries in Saturday's 38-35 win over Utah State.

Stafford (6'0/230) chipped in for what was a fantastic team rushing effort by the Air Force. They finished with 407 yards on the ground, plus four touchdowns. For his part, Stafford posted 398 yards (5.9 YPC) and a touchdown for the campaign as a whole.

Air Force sophomore QB Isaiah Sanders rushed for 196 yards and three touchdowns on 44 attempts while completing 4-of-12 passes for 33 yards and an interception in Saturday's 38-35 win over Utah State.

On what was a monster evening, it was Sanders' last rushing touchdown which truly left its mark. That 10-yard scoring scamper put the Falcons ahead 38-35 with under two minutes remaining, rescuing the game from the jaws of defeat in the process. Prior to Saturday's contest, the 6-foot-2, 213-pound Sanders had seen the field only in limited capacity. It took injuries to both Arion Worthman (knee) and Nate Romine (collarbone) for the sophomore to draw the start. He certainly made the most of his opportunity.

Utah State head coach Matt Wells expects Air Force junior QB Arion Worthman (knee) to play on Saturday.

Worthman missed last week's game against Boise State with the injury. He's run for 821 yards and 13 touchdowns this season with 1,100 passing yards and a 10/4 TD/INT ratio.

Air Force redshirt junior RB Timothy McVey rushed for 39 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's 21-0 loss to Army.

McVey and the rest of the Falcons' offense struggled to an extreme degree against the Black Knights, managing all of 184 total yards of offense in the defeat. For his part, McVey had rushed for at least 90 yards in each of his last two games before being shut down on Saturday.

Air Force junior QB Arion Worthman ran for 117 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 45-28 win over Colorado State.

Worthman also went 2-for-4 for 64 yards, a touchdown and an interception through the air. He's rushed for 90 or more yards in four straight games. Not so long ago, Air Force was on the precipice of a lost season, sitting at 1-4 with a four-game losing streak. But now riding a three-game winning streak, the 4-4 Falcons need only two more wins to go bowling. They'll look to keep the good times rolling in a rivalry game against Army next week.

Air Force redshirt junior RB Timothy McVey rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in the school's 45-42 win over Nevada on Friday.

Air Force produced three rushers of at least 100 yards, and another with 92 yards and two touchdowns. Yes, Air Force carried the football 91 times for 550 yards against Nevada.

Air Force junior QB Arion Worthman threw for 72 yards and ran for 166 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 34-30 win over UNLV.

Air Force is a little down this year -- they entered today on a four-game losing skid -- but the Falcons may just claw their way back into bowl contention if Worthman has anything to say about it. He's rushed for 90 or more rushing yards in three straight and has surpassed 135 ground yards in each of the past two. Air Force, now 2-4, should be able to climb within a game of .500 next week against lowly Nevada.
Sat, Oct 14, 2017 05:18:00 PM

Air Force junior FB Parker Wilson's (undisclosed) status for Saturday's game against UNLV is unknown.

Wilson was questionable for Saturday's game against Navy, and he ended up playing. Our working assumption is that he'll similarly be able to give it a go against the Rebels. Wilson has run for 182 yards on a 4.9 YPC average this year.

Air Force junior QB Arion Worthman threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-45 loss to Navy.

To top it off, he also recorded a 24-yard reception. Worthman was dynamite, almost good enough to drag the 1-4 Falcons to an upset win over Navy. Alas, Air Force came up just short when the Mids rallied for an eleventh-hour touchdown. Worthman has rushed for 60 or more yards in four straight games.
Sat, Oct 7, 2017 07:23:00 PM

Air Force redshirt junior RB Timothy McVey had 10 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 62-0 stomping of VMI.

McVey (5'9/190) was also Air Force's leading receiver, turning three catches into 77 yards. The Falcons led 35-0 at halftime and shuffled in backups from there. An incredible 17 Falcons divvied up the team's 67 rushing attempts. Air Force had 457 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in total.

Air Force HC Troy Calhoun proposed expanding the Playoff to eight teams, with four Group of Five teams taking part in a mini-Playoff to get into the big dance.

Calhoun's proposition is both palatable -- we would be surprised if the Playoff field is not eventually bumped up to eight teams, there is plenty of support for that -- and kind of insane. In his scenario, the winner of each Power Five conference would receive an automatic bid, with two wild card spots and a guaranteed Group of Five spot rounding things out. In order to earn that guaranteed Group of Five slot, there would be a four-team Playoff. Again, that would be just to get into the actual Playoff. The issue here, of course, would be that the Group of Five team (already at a disadvantage on a pure talent level) would need to play an additional two games on top of their current slate. This is all probably a bridge too far on the logistics front, though we admire the creativity.

Air Force redshirt junior RB Timothy McVey was limited in spring practice due to an injury concern.

The nature of the injury has not been specified, but it looks like McVey (5'9/190) should be a go for August camp. Said RB coach Ben Miller during spring practice, "He's the exact replica you'd like to have in terms of work ethic each day. We'd love to have him out here, but it is good for these young guys to get these reps." This past season, McVey rolled his way to 708 yards and 10 touchdowns on just 83 carries. His 8.5 YPC clip was good for third-best in the FBS. He did all this while seeing 59 carries fewer than Jacobi Owens, who rumbled off into the sunset at the end of the 2016. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks McVey as the No. 52 running back for fantasy play during the coming season.

Air Force junior QB Arion Worthman enters the summer as the undisputed starter.

Worthman assumed QB1 duties last season due to an injury to Nate Romine and recorded a 5-0 record as the Falcons' starter. He finished with 674 yards and six rushing touchdowns while going 23-of-39 passing for 546 yards and four scores. With Romine having graduated, it's now Worthman's show. He's a gifted option quarterback, but struggles in the pocket.
