2014 Air Force Falcons Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks

2013 Record: 2-10
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 4.0*
2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
Troy Calhoun's program has taken a nose dive over the last three years, seeing their win total drop each of those seasons and bottoming out with last year's 2-10 debacle. Service academies always have a low ceiling. But the Falcons' is lowering like a lid on Calhoun's coaching coffin.
However, the Falcons should have a significant turnaround this season. They welcome back 16 returning starters, the most of Calhoun's eight-year tenure. That includes their quarterback, two of their top three rushers, top four receivers, and 18 of 20 top tacklers. Neither the offense nor the defense ranked in the Top 90 in the nation last year. But experience should be in their corner this season and improvements should be noticeable.
Air Force could surpass its 2013 win total in its first three games. They host Nicholls State and face fellow option team Georgia State. In between is a trip to Laramie to face Wyoming in a series the visitor has won four straight times. Air Force also hosts Navy and New Mexico and they have winnable road games at Army (off a bye week) and at UNLV.
I would be bullish on Air Force if their season win total was released here. Even if they can't spring a big upset this year I think there are enough winnable games to get this team over the hump. In fact, if this team can catch a break or two this team will be flirting with .500 heading into the season finale against Colorado State. Play them 'over'.
