Arizona Bowl: Air Force vs. South Alabama Prediction, Preview, Spread

South Alabama Jaguars tight end Gerald Everett is tackled by Arkansas State Red Wolves defensive back Cody Brown during the South Alabama v Arkansas State NCAA football game at Centennial Bank Stadium Jonesboro AR

Remember a long time ago (okay, back in September) when this world wasn't such a insane place, everything seemed possible and South Alabama went into Starkville and beat Mississippi State?

For the Arizona Bowl there is no set payout, but the game gifted 5,000 tickets to each school with the understanding the school would keep any revenue generated from the sales. However, they battled New Mexico State and fought their way into a bowl. At 9-3 overall this season, Air Force will be seeking a 10th win which would place the 2016 Falcons in rare territory.

It was a streaky season for Air Force that was highlighted by a few major wins. South Alabama is one of the nation's worst against the run (No. 98 nationally, 212 yards allowed), while Air Force boasts the country's No. 3 rushing offense with 323 yards per game. Then Air Force lost three straight to less-than-stellar opponents.

These two programs have never played each other before, so bragging rights are on the line. It's the same thing South Alabama does not defend well against.

This one's easy. Dallas Davis will get picked off twice against a tough-knit Air Force defense.

"I've been coming to Air Force football games since I was this tall".
