USAFA — The Air Force Falcon football team fell to No. 25 Boise State, 49-30, in Mountain West Conference action on Saturday.
The Halloween game gave the Falcons plenty of match-up problems, which includes giving up 14 'big plays' (plays that gain 10-yards or more) and having a third down conversion rate of 33%.
Both the starting quarterbacks and running backs for Air Force & Boise State either left the game in the first half, or did not play due to injury.
The Falcons gained 415 yards on the ground, to set a new season-high.
Leading the ground game was junior Brandon Lewis, who had the first 100-plus yard game of his career, finishing with a new career-best 112 yards on 10 carries, to go along with a touchdown.
Senior Matthew Murla also added two scores on the ground, the first multi-touchdown game of his career.
Murla replaced starting running back Timothy Jackson & Kadin Remsberg in the game.
The Falcons return to the field Saturday, Nov. 7, for the second leg of the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy at Army West Point with kickoff from Michie Stadium set for 11:30 a.m. ET.
