Air Force looks to make it two in a row against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Air Force Falcons haven't played each other since 2007, and the last time they did the Falcons whipped the Irish 41-24. This time around, quarterback Tim Jefferson leads the Falcons option attack coming off a thrilling upset victory over Navy in overtime last week.
The Irish, on the other hand led by quarterback Tommy Rees, who's firmly entrenched himself as the Notre Dame starter, come off a 38-10 beating of the Purdue Boilermakers. Rees looks to build on his three-touchdown day as Air Force figures out how they can shut down Irish wide receiver Michael Floyd.
