What to Know

The Wyoming Cowboys and the Air Force Falcons are even-steven against one another since January of 2016 (6-6), but not for long. Wyoming and the Falcons will face off in a Mountain West battle at 6 p.m. ET Friday at Clune Arena. The teams split their matchups last year, with Air Force winning the first 72-69 at home on the road and Wyoming taking the second 77-58.

It was close but no cigar for Wyoming as they fell 65-62 to the Boise State Broncos on Tuesday. The top scorers for Wyoming were forward Graham Ike (19 points) and guard Hunter Maldonado (17 points).

Meanwhile, Air Force was able to grind out a solid win over the San Jose State Spartans on Tuesday, winning 63-53.

The Cowboys are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 6-1 ATS in away games but only 10-6-1 all in all.

Wyoming is now 15-3 while Air Force sits at 10-8. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Wyoming enters the contest with a 48.50% field goal percentage, good for 19th best in college basketball. Less enviably, Air Force is stumbling into the game with the 351st fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 59.7 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Falcons.
